Miss. CU Reps Get A Special Valentine

GULFPORT Miss.-More than 340 credit union employees and volunteers around the state still recovering from Hurricane Katrina got a special Valentine on Valentine's Day-a rose and a $200 check. An accompanying card reminded the recipients "You are part of something much bigger than you may ever know." The Valentine's Day gesture was courtesy of Southeast Corporate FCU and the Mississippi CU League as a means of extending hope and caring and a reminder that the credit union community has not forgotten the workers, many of whom still repairing their homes or living in temporary quarters. The staff and volunteers had been identified through a grant process for victims of the massive storm.
