To celebrate commitment to the community, on Oct. 16, Interior Savings closed all credit union and insurance branches at 2 p.m. to allow their employees to volunteer within their own communities.

This provided an opportunity for Interior Savings staff to lend a hand to all of those community organizations who work tirelessly for the benefit of others. The day was called “Interior Savings Day of Difference.”

In Barriere the Interior Savings team turned out to prepare two homemade soups, fresh buns and coffee in the Barriere Seniors Hall.  From 12 noon to 4 p.m. soup was served up to community members at no cost, but with any donations gladly accepted and the proceeds of which earmarked for the Barriere Food Bank.
