Atlantic Credit Unions Rally in Support of Nepal Relief Efforts
“We are so thankful and proud of all of the hard work, time and dedication the Atlantic credit union staff and members provided to the earthquake victims of Nepal. The people of Atlantic Canada are very generous and have come together to help others in their time of need.”
– Samantha Warshick, Canadian Red Cross
Credit unions in Atlantic Canada have again shown their compassion for those in need through the recent fund-raising efforts for the Canadian Red Cross in support of the Nepal Region Earthquake Relief campaign.
This campaign yielded over $10,900 in donations for the cause, and its success was due in large part to the great efforts of Atlantic credit unions and their members, and supplemented with the fund-matching initiative carried out with Atlantic Central and League Savings and Mortgage Company.
Donors are reminded that although the Atlantic Credit Unions’ campaign ended on May 31st, the Canadian Red Cross fund-raising efforts may continue for a while yet. Tax receipts may not be issued to donors by the Red Cross until their campaign has concluded.
A big Thank You to all donors!
– Compassion and Caring … just another part of the credit union difference!
