Summerland Credit Union has donated a new pop-up tent to NeighbourLink, the first of several initiatives planned in 2019 to celebrate the credit union’s 75th anniversary.

“Since our inception, with the support of our members, Summerland Credit Union has been giving back to our community. It’s one of our core values as an organization,” marketing coordinator Erin Trainer said.

“NeighbourLink does amazing work to connect people in need with available resources. They also host social events for seniors who might otherwise be isolated.”

The organization says on their website that their goal is to “provide help to all the people of Summerland, without strings and without charge.”

The donated tent will be used at events around town in order to generate public awareness about the non-profit organization, as well as providing shade for their volunteers.

“NeighbourLink wants to ensure that anyone who requires help knows we are there for them. With this generous donation from Summerland Credit Union, we will be able to have a presence in Summerland and create a welcoming place for people to learn more about our services,” NeighbourLink coordinator Mirjana Komljenovic said.

Trainer says this donation is just one of many charitable actions planned this year from Summerland Credit Union.

“We recently adopted a bold new mission statement, ‘We Enrich Lives,’” Trainer said. “It’s our goal to not only provide superior financial services for our members, but also to enrich their lives, as well as those in our community.”
