MOUNT VERNON — A little bit of selfless giving for those less fortunate went a long way Friday afternoon in Mount Vernon. Following the devastating tornado that ravaged one Oklahoma community on May 20, officials at CES Credit Union decided to reach out to those affected by the twister and lend a helping hand.

“When you see the videos, it’s unreal,” said CES Credit Union marketing director James McLaughlin. “On Tuesday, we were talking about everything that happened the night before down in Moore, and a couple people said, ‘I wonder if we could do something?’”

Well, do something they did. A decision was made for CESCU to offer lunch for a donation with all proceeds to benefit the victims of the Moore disaster through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. “We wanted to make this easy. Pizza, pop and chips ... you can’t go wrong with that,” said McLaughlin of the lunch offered to anyone who made a donation.

Contact was made with WNZR 90.
