These uncertain times are causing concern over job security for the next few weeks. Centris FCU understands that, and has donated TWO giant containers of food to Together Omaha, a homeless services organization.
“It kind of feels like the twilight zone because in the 10 years I’ve been at Together this has never happened,” said Mike Hornacek, President and CEO of the Together, Inc., a local Community Food Bank. He’s referring to an empty room at their food pantry. It’s typically packed with people waiting their turn to pick up some groceries, but starting Monday, they’ve moved the operation outside.
“We are trying to help as many people as we can as efficiently as possible, in the shortest amount of time possible, with the least amount of contact,” said Hornacek.

All we can say is, WOW! State Employees' CU’s foundation has donated $5 Million in grants to NC Baptists on Mission for Disaster Relief! Thank you to all for this incredible gesture in ensuring everyone in their community is safe!
“We are very proud to be partnering with NC Baptists on Mission to help get families back into their homes,” remarked Ms. Campbell. “Restoring up to 1,000 residences identified as still in need of repair is quite an undertaking, and SECU members through their Foundation responded in a big way. From NCBOM’s strong board and staff leadership to the rallying support from state agencies, non-profits and local communities, this organization is not only helping repair physical structures – they are also rebuilding lives.”
