Stories of our community involvement
SimpleGenerosity Neighbourhood grants continue to help our communities thrive. Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union was pleased to award a $500 grant to the Joy Committee – a group of Winners/Homesense staff dedicated to spreading positivity wherever they can.
“We decided that we would like to extend our Joy into the community and help lift the spirits of some of our seniors,” says Cheryl Gill, Joy Ambassador. “[Seniors] have been isolated for so long without the opportunity to see the people who mean the most to them.” 75 seniors at the Trinity Care Centre in Penticton were in for a surprise when they received a fun kit which contained a puzzle book, a pen, candy, tissue and a handwritten note.

Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union is proud to announce this month’s #SimpleGenerosity Volunteer Award recipient, Arianna Almeida.

In 2019, Arianna started the Girls Can Talk Society- a BC student-led non-profit organization that creates a space for girls and young women to talk about mental health, feminism, and leadership. Arianna spearheaded the development and organization of the non-profit in her community and it has since spread to a strong network involving secondary schools across BC.

“She has created a platform for youth to talk openly, find community, and engage as leaders in their own schools,” says Vanessa Gale, Team Lead of the Go Girls! Program with Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland. “Through this, she has worked with her team to fundraise for women's support organizations and give back to the community in a meaningful way.”

Through the Society’s youth run workshops and partnership with the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland, they hope to further support youth in their community by helping those transitioning from Elementary school to Secondary school.

Thank you for inspiring and empowering the next generation of women and congratulations on your award!

Karen is the driving force behind CRPaws. As one of the founding members in 2014, she dedicates hours upon hours to help vulnerable animals in her community.

This May, Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union is celebrating Rupi Rajwan for her tremendous community outreach efforts. Over 10 years ago, she started her own program named Cozy Covers benefiting people who need warm clothes in the winter/fall. Just this past winter, she didn’t let the pandemic slow her down and continued to ask for community support through fundraising online and accepting drop off donations like groceries and clothing at her home (or picking them up herself).
She also started "Project: I am beautiful" and wrote a children’s book that defines beautiful from within and to believe in yourself.
Join us in congratulating Rupi on her 2021 SimpleGenerosity Volunteer Award. She has selected Best for Babies (I am Beautiful Project) and Archway Food Bank as the recipients of her charitable donation award.
