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.

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
