Employees at three credit unions here-Cabrillo, Carlsbad City and Sharp CU-have donated $5,000 that had been earmarked for an annual holiday party to Habitat for Humanity to support hurricane relief efforts. Cabrillo CU CEO Robin Lentz said the idea was suggested by one of its employees. "I am so pleased that I have employees who would give up their annual party to help others," said Lentz. In addition, six branches of the three partner CUs also asked members for donations to the Red Cross, raising another $5,400 in the process.
