ORLANDO, FL – FAIRWINDS Credit Union is announcing a $100,000 donation toward the OneOrlando Fund, established by the City of Orlando to assist and support those impacted by last weekend’s mass shooting.

The OneOrlando Fund will offer support and services to individuals affected by the Pulse tragedy.
