Interior Savings employees available to help with community projects

Interior Savings is turning the tables and looking for volunteer opportunities for 500 employees

Staff from Clearwater's credit union join other community members to work on a trail behind the hospital during Day of Difference in 2014. About 10 are available as volunteers again this fall.

Though the norm is a call for volunteers, Interior Savings is turning the tables and looking for volunteer opportunities for 500 employees.

This Oct. 20, on International Credit Union Day, Interior Savings is once again celebrating its annual Day of Difference, a day to recognize its cooperative values and celebrate those who are making a difference in their community.

On this day, Interior Savings’ credit union and insurance branches will close early and 500 employees will fan out across 14 communities, from Osoyoos to Clearwater, to assist organizations who are helping build healthy and vibrant communities.

“As a locally-based cooperative, our success is tied to the success of our communities,” said Kathy Conway, Interior Savings CEO. “Day of Difference is our way of saying thanks to the non-profits and volunteers who give their time and their hearts to help build brighter futures, right here at home.”

 

Interior Savings is looking for organizations in need of volunteers from 2:30 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20. They’re willing to do most-anything: yard work, painting, envelope-stuffing, meal prep, or general chores. Just ask!
