To celebrate Credit Union Day, local Kootenay Savings employees donated $1728 to the Kootenay Animal Assistance Program. The funds were raised as part of the credit union’s Care Wear program. The program gives all employees and directors the opportunity to dress casually every Friday. Participants pay $1 per week for the privilege, with the Kootenay Savings Community Foundation matching all contributions. Then on Credit Union Day, each location donates their funds to a deserving charity or community group.
