Food Drives Being Held to Celebrate Co-op Week/Credit Union Day

Atlantic credit unions serve more than 317,000 members at 179 points of service, and have been ranked #1 in customer service excellence for the 10th consecutive year by an independent survey of Canadians. Staff at the 54 credit unions in Atlantic Canada are very dedicated to supporting their local communities and providing members with a focused approach to achieving their financial goals.

Because Atlantic credit unions are truly committed to the well-being of their communities and recognize that hunger is a very real and serious issue, many of them will be holding food drives on various dates throughout the month of October. These food drives, in support of local food banks, are just one of the ways Atlantic credit unions will honour their commitment to the well-being of their communities. They encourage everyone to visit their local credit union to make a food drive donation, and assist in tackling hunger in their communities. Participating credit unions include:
