A group of credit unions in Ontario has come together quickly to support efforts to recover from devastating floods in British Columbia.
Libro Credit Union kicked off a response from seven credit unions, leading to a combined donation of $60,000 to the British Columbia Floods and Extreme Weather Appeal, launched by the Canadian Red Cross.
The credit unions joining the effort are:
- • Libro Credit Union
- • DUCA Credit Union
- • FirstOntario Credit Union
- • Kindred Credit Union
- • Meridian Credit Union
- • YNCU
- • Northern Credit Union
Libro CEO and Head Coach Steve Bolton said: “Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the flooding, and the first instinct of everyone involved in a credit union is a desire to help, even in a small way.
“Thank you to all the Ontario credit unions stepping up to the plate for this: it’s a great example of the cooperation that’s second-nature to people involved in cooperative banking.”
There is still time for more credit unions, and of course other organizations and individuals, to contribute to the appeal directly.
