Meet Nadine Mourao , a Member Service Representative at our Gabriola location. Nadine worked for Coastal Community for six years in our Finance department before taking a break to work in the not-for-profit sector for three and a half years. She happily returned to Coastal in August, saying, “It’s great to be back!”

Nadine has been volunteering for her daughter’s grade seven class at Gabriola Elementary. She’s taken on the role of Marketing/Promotions/Event Coordinator and Parent Event volunteer to help with fundraising for the grade seven year-end trip. Nadine is one of our recent Employee Volunteer program winners and will direct her funds to the trip, as it’s an important rite of passage for grade seven students.
It's Random Acts of Kindness week & in the spirit of doing some good in the community, we donated some books to our local Little Library! Coastal Community Credit Union
Coastal Community is proud to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation on Vancouver Island during Heart Month.

Across the island, our Coastal Community locations are holding fundraisers and dressing red each Friday in support of Heart Month. Marci Birnie and Julie Rigby from our Discovery Harbour location in Campbell River are proud to wear red Fridays during February.
Did you know our employees donate thousands of hours to their local communities? We're proud to support their efforts through our Coastal Community Employee Program. Through the program, employees track their hours on Do Some Good. Then each month we draw 3 random winners to receive funds for an organization of their choice. In 2021, we donated $7,200 to local charities on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

Meet one of our latest winners, Fairleigh Taylor ! Fairleigh is a Senior Member Service Representative at our Quadra Island location. She’s been with us for 22 years. In Fairleigh’s free time, she loves to volunteer in her community. Currently she serves as the treasurer at the Quadra Island Senior Housing Society and helps fundraise for the Phil Thompson Memorial Daycare. Fairleigh is directing her winnings to the Phil Thompson Memorial Daycare cookbook fundraiser, a cause she helps to lead.

Our volunteer spotlight this month is on Communications Specialist Gerry Weaver . Gerry has been working with Coastal Community’s Marketing team for four years now, and she was so grateful to have the opportunity to join the team for a volunteer day with HeroWork Victoria. This amazing organization helps renovate buildings for local charities. In their words, it’s like modern day barn raising! Gerry helped with the renovation project for Indigenous Perspectives Society in Victoria.

Asked about the experience, Gerry said, “At the end of the day, I was paint spattered, tired—and completely uplifted to help with turning IPS’s building into a more efficient and culturally relevant space. It was a great day!”

Gerry will be directing her winnings to Vancouver Island Mental Health Society. “The last couple of years have been so stressful for so many people,” she said. “It’s really important that there are mental health resources available to help us through.”
