British Columbians are facing massive wildfires that have triggered evacuations in several communities including Ashcroft where a number of our members and employees live. More than 45,000 people across the province have been forced from their homes by the fast moving flames, and they are in need of urgent help.
Interior Savings has donated $5000 to support Canadian Red Cross efforts on the ground to provide assistance to those affected. And true to the cooperative values we hold close, it’s no surprise that some of our members have reached out to ask how they can help too.
Donations can be made online at www.redcross.ca/BCFires/CreditUnionsofBCandON. Charitable tax receipts will be issued.
Your donation will help provide immediate relief including cots, blankets and financial assistance for food, clothing, and personal needs. Beyond meeting immediate needs, donations may also help re-entry and assist with long-term recovery and preparedness.
Credit unions aren’t just about financial well-being, but about people helping people. From all of us at Interior Savings, we would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation for your support. Thank you.
