On Oct. 18, Interior Savings will be painting the town blue with a crew of volunteers and a big stack of cash that’s just itching to do some good.
It’s all part of Interior Savings’ annual Day of Difference. In addition to serving up treats for members and sending a swarm of employees out into the community to give back, the Credit Union is looking for volunteers to help spend $10,000 on acts of local good.
For the third consecutive year as part of its Day of Difference, Interior Savings is inviting members and local residents to share what good they would do with $100. The Credit Union will then give $100 to 100 people to complete their good deed.
“The response to this program has been overwhelming,” said Corinne Johnson, Interior Savings’ Manager of Community Engagement.
“Last year, we received over 100 registrations in less than two hours. The money was used to buy coffee for strangers, warm clothes and food for those in need, teachers involved their classes in determining how to spend it, while one person even called in the help of some friends to turn $100 into 100 care packages.”
On Oct, 18, go to www.localgive.eventbrite.ca to share what local good you could do with $100. Registration will be open for the entire day and successful applicants will be notified by Nov. 1.
Keep an eye out on October 18 for Interior Savings staff volunteering in their blue community crew shirts. The Ashcroft Branch will be closing its doors at 2 p.m. so the team can head over to the Thompson View Manor to help with some fall yard maintenance and clean up from 2:30 to 5 p.m.
