Care Wear program, introduced in 2004, affords Kootenay Savings  employees and directors the chance to dress casually each Friday.  They don’t get to dress like that for free though, so each week throughout the year participating employees and directors pay $1 for the privilege, and the Kootenay Savings Community Foundation matches the amount contributed.  Each branch and department then selects a worthwhile community group to donate their funds to, presenting them with a cheque on Credit Union Day.

I am pleased to announce that Kootenay Savings Crossroads Branch and Money Works staff has decided to donate the proceeds from this program to Castlegar District United Way this year.  Funds raised over the were $1,378.  Annually we celebrate Credit Union Day, which takes place this year on October 18, 2012
