Nelson credit union celebrates kindness

Nov. 13 was World Kindness Day, when Nelson and District Credit Union staff each carried out arandom act of co-operation to start their work day.

To celebrate kindness, community and co-operation, each employee played a role by identifying a stand-out volunteer in the community. Recently, the credit union donated $100 to the local organization the chosen volunteer is affiliated with, in the name of that outstanding individual. Nelson staff helped to distribute $3,500 back to several local organizations.

“We feel that recognizing volunteers is the best way to celebrate community,”said the credit union’s Tom Atkins.
