North Okanagan service agencies have received a boost from a financial institution.

Interior Savings Credit Union is donating $6,600 to the local United Way, which supports 27 non-profit organizations.

“We consider our relationship with the United Way to be more than just charitable giving,” said Kathy Conway, Interior Savings senior vice-president.

“They are one of our community partners, helping us make a difference in the areas of youth, health and economic development.”

For every person who liked, shared or tagged themselves on Interior Savings’ new Facebook page, the credit union donated $5 to the United Way.

“We are thrilled with this great new initiative by Interior Savings to generate donations to United Way via Facebook,” said Linda Yule, with the United Way.

“This fresh, new way of giving also raises awareness about all United Ways in the Interior. Thank you to Interior Savings for thinking outside the box.”
