Interior Savings has joined forces with five other B.C. credit unions to support flood relief in Alberta.

“Given the significant damage caused by the floods, rebuilding and restoration will take some time, but we are confident that the courage and solidarity shown by Albertans will see them through,” said Kathy Conway, Interior Savings president.

“As ongoing support will be needed, we encourage our members to join us in assisting Albertans by making a financial contribution directly to the Red Cross.”

Interior Savings has branches in Vernon and Lake Country.

The other participating credit unions in the flood relief campaign are Prospera, Coast Capital Savings, Vancity, First West, and Westminster Savings
