Interior Savings set to make a difference this Thursday

Day to make a difference

Interior Savings is giving away $10,000 in cash on October 21.

This Thursday is International Credit Union Day and Interior Savings are once again celebrating with their Day of Difference.

Day of Difference is a day where the Credit Union gives thanks to its members and gives back to the community with a day-long celebration.

The day starts with a breakfast for employees and locally made gifts for members. Then, in the afternoon, over 400 employees will fan out across their community to volunteer and surprise people with almost $10,000 in gifts, random acts of kindness and cheques to local non-profits.

“It’s a day when credit unions around the globe celebrate the history and achievements of the credit union movement and all those who have been a part of it. As a cooperative, we believe we can make the greatest difference in people’s lives by working together and this is one way to say thanks to our members and to the many non-profit partners who are helping to make our community strong," said Kathy Conway, Interior Savings’ CEO.

From Lake Country to West Kelowna, all credit union and insurance branches will close at 2:00 p.m. Thursday.

"You’ll find employees volunteering all over town, cleaning up streets and streams, helping groups like Mamas for Mamas, Helens Acres, Kelowna Hospice, Clubhouse Farms and Silver Lake Forestry Camp with fall property clean up, and popping up here and there with gifts and random acts of kindness. Donations will also be made to the Food Bank, CMHA, Foundry, BC Children’s Hospital and Paws it Forward," said Conway.
