"There's a lot of small businesses that are hurting right now," said Redstone Federal Credit Union CEO Joe Newberry. "There's also some of our members that been temporarily laid off or maybe let go. We are credit union about people helping people and that's why it's important for us to have alternatives for them during this temporary crisis."
