KSCU honoured by Canadian Cancer Society

Kootenay Savings Credit Union (KSCU) has been named a Provincial Community Champion for 2012 by the Canadian Cancer Society.

Kootenay Savings Credit Union (KSCU) has been named a Provincial Community Champion for 2012 by the Canadian Cancer Society for their extensive commitment to the charity organization. The award, presented by Allison McCarthy and Stacey Cassidy of the Society, was received on Friday by a group of employees from Kootenay Savings’ departments and branches in the Greater Trail area.

Kootenay Savings supports the Canadian Cancer Society annually by sponsoring, volunteering at and participating in the Trail, Castlegar and Columbia Valley Relay For Life, the Society’s signature community fundraising event. In addition, employees of Kootenay Savings have organized events such as Growvember, Bike to Work Week and other fundraising initiatives to help the Society provide support to people living with cancer, fund cancer research, and share the message of cancer prevention.

The Canadian Cancer Society is committed to a world where no Canadian fears cancer, a vision that is supported by Kootenay Savings, where it is a priority to instill the values of volunteerism in employees.

“It is truly an honour for Kootenay Savings to receive the Community Champion Award from the Cancer Society,” shared Kootenay Savings Community Liaison, Aron Burke.  “As an organization that has, unfortunately, had a number of employees affected by cancer over the years, it’s very important for us to support the Cancer Society’s mission of eradicating cancer, and enhancing the quality of life of Canadians living with cancer.”

Kootenay Savings is a model business in Kootenay communities,” says Stacey Cassidy, Coordinator of the Trail Relay For Life. “They extend the spirit of team work by giving back to their communities. We feel privileged to be the recipients of that good will”.
