The Kootenay Co-Op is helping out ANKORS with a new program.

Kootenay Co-Op teams up to help ANKORS program

The Kootenay Co-op and ANKORS are joining forces in an exciting project during Wellness Week

ANKORS is a local organization that assists some of our most vulnerable community members and has been serving the Kootenay Boundary Region since 1992. They serve those living with, and at the greatest risk of acquiring, HIV/AIDS and/or HCV.

One of the services ANKORS offers is to provide vitamins to their clients; those people whose immune system may be compromised and nutrient intake may be low. This service relies entirely on donations.

The Kootenay Co-op and ANKORS are joining forces in an exciting project during Wellness Week, to remedy the current shortfall in the vitamin supply for ANKORS’ clients.

For every supplement purchased by an active Co-op member during Wellness

Week, the Co-op will donate $1 towards the purchase of vitamins and supplements for ANKORS, up to a maximum value of $1,000.

Wellness Week, a week of great member savings and community giving at the Co-op, is slated for March 4-10. Those wishing to support this project can find more information in the Wellness Week pamphlet (available on and from the Wellness department.
