City CU Mourns Fallen Dallas Police Officers
Tuesday, July 12, 2016 7:00 AM

The tragedy that occurred last week resulting in the deaths of four Dallas Police Officers and one Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Officer is still being deeply felt throughout the community and by everyone at City Credit Union. City CU was founded by City of Dallas employees, including Dallas police officers, and still serves many Dallas Police Department and DART officers today.

"All of us at City CU are trying to find ‘normal’ after last week’s tragedy," said Sharon Moore, president/CEO of City CU. "DART and City of Dallas employees are a visible segment of our membership and many are friends of our City CU family. I think we are all grieving in some way for the lives lost, the devastation to the families of the fallen officers, and to the long- term impact to our community and nation. We are doing everything we can to help raise funds for the families of the police officers that were killed last week and are reaching out individually and as an organization to help provide financial and emotional support for the brave men and women that protect us."

The Dallas Police Department has asked that all donation requests be directed through two officially endorsed websites:

The Dallas Foundation at dallasfoundation.org

Assist the Officer at atodallas.org

All donations submitted to these two websites will be equally divided among all five of the fallen officers and their families. In an effort to get the word out, City CU has provided this information on its website, in-branch media, and social media sites. City CU will also be making a donation to each organization.

In addition, all City CU associates will be wearing blue this week to show support for the men and women of law enforcement they serve daily. They’ve also asked their associates to take the time to show their appreciation and gratitude through a kind word or gesture, as this could mean the world to officers during this difficult time. City CU associates will also be traveling to visit first responders around each branch location to deliver food and gift baskets and to show support for their service.

City CU continues to be on standby with DPD associations and DART to see if there is any other way they can be of assistance.
