Had the pleasure of wearing my jeans to work today as part of an extra fundraising effort to support the good people at the Canadian Red Cross who are providing amazing support to the BC wildfire efforts. So proud to work for Island Savings a division of First West Credit Union for its ongoing support to our communities, children and families. In addition to directing money to the Red Cross, individuals can also direct funds to the Full Cupboard. All funds raised for the program are being processed for immediate donation to our local food banks. 100 % of your donation will go to the food bank of your choice. Food Banks BC is in close contact with the Red Cross, and our signature cause fundraising will provide support where needed most. Food banks in areas that are not impacted by the wildfires are also offering resources to their peers. You can donate to the Full Cupboard today at any Island Savings branch or online. https://www.gifttool.com/donatio...
Island Savings a division of First West Credit Union staff donned their denim today with an extra Jeans Day in support of the Canadian Red Cross and the BC Fires Appeal. Staff typically donate once a month for the opportunity to dress more casually and support their local food banks through our signature cause "The Full Cupboard”. With the state of emergency in the province and thousands displaced by the BC wildfires, an additional Jeans Day was a quick and easy way that staff wanted to give back and help raise more funds and awareness for the current Red Cross efforts. Money will go to help with immediate relief such as cots, blankets, family reunification and financial assistance for food, clothing and personal needs. Beyond immediate needs, donations may also go towards more long-term recovery.
We know many of you would like to support the BC wildfires relief efforts. You can join us, and dozens of credit unions in BC and ON, to help. Monetary donations of $5 or more can be made by way of credit card payment directly through the Red Cross Wildfire Support webpage at https://secure.redcross.ca/regis... To date more than $48,000 has been collected!
