PARADISE, Calif. - Sierra Central Credit Union reopened Friday, May 17, with a ceremony.
The business had a ribbon cutting ceremony with music, a barbecue and raffle giveaways for those who attended.
The Paradise branch has been in the town for over 35 years and the building was spared by the Camp Fire.
The company, in partnership with the Treat'em Like a King Foundation, donated a $271,000 check to the North Valley Foundation for recovery efforts.
"We had credit unions in New York send us money," said John Cassidy, the CEO of Sierra Central Credit Union. "The credit union industry in itself, our business partners within that industry and other credit unions throughout the United States sent us [$5 thousand to $20 thousand checks] to help build that fund up as well as some community groups locally."
The company also donated $2,500 to the Paradise Moose Lodge to help the organization rebuild.
