Nelson and District Credit Union and Kootenay Savings Credit Union recently collaborated to support the Kootenay and Boundary Regional Food Producers Co-op and the Nelson and Area Elder Abuse Prevention Program.
Pictured are Aron Burke (far left) of Kootenay Savings and Tom Atkins (far right) of Nelson and District Credit Union who were excited to have their respective credit unions financially support two Kootenay-made initiatives.
Next to Burke (left to right) from the Kootenay and Boundary Regional Food Producers Co-op are co-ordinator Nicholas Albright, directors Kim Charlesworth and Marvin Work, and member Valerie Sanderson. The co-op is fundraising to build a centralized storage facility for their member producers.
Next to Atkins (right) is Yvonne Shewfelt, chair of the Nelson and Area Elder Abuse Prevention Program, which is co-ordinating an initiative to train volunteers to support seniors and families in preparing advanced planning documentation.
