Interior Savings $10,000 Give returns for third year

Get ready for some warm fuzzies.  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 its 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 year in a row, as part of its Day of Difference, Interior Savings is inviting members and  residents in the communities it serves 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.

Also on Oct. 18, keep an eye out for Interior Savings staff volunteering in their blue community crew shirts. The Lillooet Branch will be closing its doors at 2 p.m. so the team can head over to the Curling Club to help prepare the ice for the fall curling season.
