Altura Employees Also Create Care Packages for Holy Fire Evacuees and Firefighters
*(Riverside, Calif.) Aug. 20, 2018 *– Altura Credit has launched an Emergency Loan Program for people impacted by recent wildfires, in particular the Holy Fire still burning in the Cleveland National Forest straddling Riverside and Orange counties. Additionally, on Aug. 10, Altura employees delivered 150 care packages to Corona and Lake Elsinore donation centers for Holy Fire evacuees and firefighters.
“It is heartbreaking to watch the damage and destruction wildfires have caused throughout California this summer, especially when it hits so close to home,” said Jennifer Binkley, president and CEO of Altura Credit Union, which is headquartered in Riverside. “Two of our employees were evacuated and we know that at least 3,400 of our Members live in the areas impacted by the Holy Fire. This emergency loan program is a way for us, as a financial institution, to help our neighbors get through a difficult time.”
Altura is offering two loan options – one for its Members and one for non-Members. Both feature 90 days with no payment, no pre-payment penalty and no loan processing fee. Member loans are offered at 0% interest and the rate for non-members is 5.99%. People can visit an Altura branch or call 1-888-883-7228 for more information and to apply.
