CACU steps up to support Hawaii First’s efforts

Posted on June 7, 2018

HILO, HI (June 6, 2018) — Hawaii First would like to recognize their first generous donor to the Pathways to Rebuilding Lives Project! Representing in true form, the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People”, Corporate America Credit Union and their President/CEO, Pete Pritts of Irondale, Alabama, stepped up to show their support by donating funds which will go directly to residents who have been displaced by the lava flow occurring in Puna, Hawaii.

Hawaii First Community Ventures, a 501(C)(3) non-profit arm of Hawaii First Federal Credit Union implemented this project in conjunction with its newly enhanced financial coaching platform to assist residents in creating step by step action plans to recover and rebuild from this natural disaster. Hawaii First is in it for the long-haul, committed to helping rebuild the lives of those that have lost everything and will now have to find the means to start over. There are currently no signs of this natural disaster ending soon and effects of this devastation, for many, will be long-term.

Funds will be granted to individuals as $500 or up to $2,000 per person upon completing their short-term action steps. Funds will be used towards essential living expenses as determined in their action plan.
