Stories of our community involvement
“Random Acts of Kindness” Katheren spent 10 months crafting and creating 1000 free fridge magnets for her community funded through our SimpleGenerosity Neighbourhood Grant. The community of Newton was thrilled to receive a caring gift from a stranger during a time of the pandemic.
Our friends at 1Up Victoria Single Parent Resource Centre Society have been busy preparing nutritious bags of quality food to 40 adults and 70 children on a weekly basis. Thanks to a SimpleGenerosity Neighbourhood Grant, 1Up was able to provide an additional 80 food bags to the community of Victoria.
The Kelowna Community Fridge have been providing nutritious fresh food for neighbours experiencing food insecurity in Kelowna. Through a SimpleGenerosity Neighbourhood Grant of $500, the Community Fridge was able to purchase food items for the pantry. Thank you, Kelowna Community Fridge, for providing easy access to nutritious food 24/7.
Through Island Savings a division of First West Credit Union SimpleGenerosity Volunteer Award, we are proud to celebrate Karen Ingle for her outstanding volunteer efforts and dedication to helping animals in need.
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. From arranging vet appointments, feeding cat colonies, leading as the foster coordinator, and implementing the low income spay/neuter program- she works tirelessly to keep animals safe and healthy.
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.
