RICHLAND, WA - Gesa Credit Union is pledging to match community donations to support survivors of the deadly mudslide in Snohomish County.

The credit union announced Wednesday it will match donations up to $10,000.

The massive mudslide, that hit almost two weeks ago in Oso, claimed at least 29 lives and left hundreds of people without homes. 

"We're hearing from credit unions on the other side of the state that some of the people who were lost in this tragedy were their members," said Brian Griffith, the Assistant Vice President of Marketing.  "We might be different credit unions, but we're all a part of a credit union family and that's why we really want to unite for good and help people out in this situation," he continued.

If you would like to make a donation, stop by any Gesa Credit Union branch; you do not need to be a member. The money will go toward housing and other immediate needs for the survivors.
