BluPeak Credit Union Steps Up to Support San Diego Flood Victims with access to clean water

press release

San Diego, CA – February 7, 2024 – In the wake of floods that have impacted communities across San Diego County, BluPeak, under the leadership of CEO Todd Tharp, has rallied to provide essential relief to those in need. Recognizing the urgent need for access to clean water, BluPeak has donated over 4,000 bottles of water to the American Red Cross of San Diego and Imperial Counties.

The recent floods in various parts of San Diego County have left many individuals displaced and many sought refuge in shelters operated by the American Red Cross. BluPeak’s support aims to address this need and reaffirm its organizational purpose of supporting access to clean water as a means for bridging socioeconomic gaps and providing aid to those in need.

Todd Tharp, CEO of BluPeak, expressed his dedication to supporting the community during times of crisis, stating, “At BluPeak, we believe in the power of community and the importance of lending a helping hand when it’s needed most. Providing access to clean water is not just a commitment for us; it’s a fundamental part of our purpose. We stand in solidarity with our fellow San Diegans during this challenging time.”

BluPeak remains committed to supporting the San Diego community and will continue to explore ways to provide assistance during times of crisis.
