Philadelphia, PA –American Heritage Credit Union raised $10,060 for the victims and relief efforts due to the recent tragedies of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. 

Through the first half of September, American Heritage employees were given two separate opportunities to participate in “Dress Down Days”, where they could wear jeans and sneakers to work for a minimum of a five-dollar donation. Our staff was determined to help our fellow Americans and went above and beyond the minimum donation to participate.

The Board of Directors also made a separate $5,000 donation to Credit Unions located in Texas to help their members who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
