Regina Day presents $280 to Tim Powell

Food Cupboard benefits from NDCU donations

Nelson and District Credit Union Director Regina Day made a special donation to the Nelson Food Cupboard Society.

Earlier this week, outgoing Nelson and District Credit Union (NDCU) Director Regina Day made a special donation to the Nelson Food Cupboard Society.

Day made the decision that she wanted to donate her farewell gift, as an outgoing director serving a three-year term, back to the community. She presented $280 to Tim Powell, Chair of the Food Cupboard.

In late May, in conjunction with Kootenay Insurance Services Inc. successful Community Appreciation Day, NDCU co-hosted a Member Awareness Day. During the event NDCU accepted the sensitive-personal documentation, in-branch, from members for secure shredding, for a donation to the Food Cupboard Society.

Close to $500 was raised, in addition to a couple boxes of food.

NDCU Director Lorne Westnedge (pictured below) presented a cheque to Food Cupboard Coordinator Kim Charlesworth at the Nelson community branch.

Any organization wanting to host a food collection event or make a donation, please contact the Nelson Food Cupboard Society to coordinate. More information is available at foodcupboard.org
