Austin, Texas-based Greater Texas Credit Union matched $5,000 in donations to Austin Disaster Relief Network as a part of the organization’s Giving Tuesday campaign. Giving Tuesday, which occurred on Dec. 1, is an annual event for nonprofits to raise awareness and support for their cause.
With a goal of raising $50,000 in 24 hours this year, Austin Disaster Relief Network used the tags #GivingTuesday and #HopeisEssential to raise awareness and funds for disaster survivors and their communities.
“Austin Disaster Relief Network provides vital resources to families to help them rebuild stability and increase their overall well-being,” said Brandy Conway, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer. “Their mission aligns with that of Greater Texas Credit Union’s and our efforts to support communities where our members live and work. We are honored to partner with Austin Disaster Relief Network to provide families with hope during and after a crisis.”
Austin Disaster Relief Network partners with places of worship and volunteers in the Greater Austin area to serve those in crisis by providing immediate monetary, housing, and counseling resources, as well as long-term repairs and rebuilding. Since 2009, Austin Disaster Relief Network has assisted more than 43,000 disaster survivors and provided close to $16 million in relief funds.
