A local credit union matched donations for Ukrainian refugees in Poland

The Polish-American Federal Credit Union (PAFCU) helps generate financial aid for Ukrainian refugees in Poland. PAFCU matches monetary donations made to the PAFCU Ukrainian Refugee Fund through April 30, according to a press release from the credit union.

Donations can be made in person at PAFCU branches in Troy or Hamtramck. In addition, checks can be mailed to: PAFCU, 2889 E. Maple Road, Troy, MI 48083. Checks should be made payable to PAFCU Ukrainian Relief Fund. Credit card donations can be made on the PAFCU website at All money will be sent to the Polish Red Cross. Donations can be made by members and non-members of credit unions.

“Metro Detroit Polonia is well known for being generous to worthy causes,” PAFCU Chairman of the Board Mark Reaume said in the press release. “I’m proud of how the credit union and our members are stepping up to help displaced Ukrainians.

“Poles know as well as anyone why this effort is so important,” said PAFCU President John Swidwinski. “Poland experienced a similar aggression in 1939, much like what Ukraine is experiencing today. The images of decimation we see every day are heartbreaking. Poland’s humanitarian resources are strained by such an influx of refugees. We have to help.
