Credit union closing for staff to support a Day of Difference

The Interior Savings team in Barriere will be supporting and assisting the Seniors Centre

Interior Savings will be closing early today (Thursday, Oct. 16) to enable all 500 department, branch and insurance service employees the opportunity to go out into the community and make a difference.

“Our benchmark for success is whether we’ve made a positive difference in the lives of our members and in our communities,” states Kathy Conway, Interior Savings President and CEO.  “To celebrate our commitment to community, on Oct. 16 we’re closing all departments, credit union and insurance branches at 2 p.m. to allow our employees to volunteer in their community. It’s an opportunity for us to lend a hand to all of those community organizations who work tirelessly for the benefit of others; we’ve coined this our Day of Difference.”

The Interior Savings team in Barriere will be supporting and assisting the Seniors Centre in serving hot soup from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Soup purchases will be by donation with all proceeds going to the Barriere Food Bank.

Oct. 16 marks International Credit Union Day and Interior Savings is joining credit unions across the globe to celebrate. This year, Interior Savings is inviting members to join them in branch from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for refreshments and to receive a small gift as a token of their appreciation.

“September marked Interior Savings 75th anniversary,” comments Conway. “In 1939, with $96.50 in deposits and 20 members, our credit union was founded on the notion of people helping people; neighbours working together to help each other and to improve their communities. We still believe in this today and it is why it’s important for our teams to go out into their communities as we celebrate the credit union movement’s history and honour those who have dedicated their lives to this movement.”

Interior Savings is encouraging everyone to join them in “A Day of Difference” by giving back in your community. Those who participate from Oct. 8 to 31 can enter to win one of three prize draws for a $250 donation to the charity of their choice. Whether you choose to volunteer, buy a coffee for the person in line behind you or hold the door open for someone, Interior Savings firmly believes that sometimes it’s the little things that add up to make a big difference in someone’s life, and in our communities as a whole. To make a difference and enter, just post photos or share your stories on Twitter or Facebook, tag @interiorsavings in your posts and use the tag #itsthelittlethings to be entered. Winners will be determined after contest closing on Oct. 31.
