When the Kerr apartment building in Nelson tragically burned down this year and residents needed assistance, the Kootenay Savings South Slocan branch didn’t hesitate to ask how can we help? Partnering with the Our Daily Bread hot lunch program based in Nelson, the branch held a coin drive, collecting $318.79 to help offer meals and a comfortable place to gather for those affected by the fire. Along with the coin drive, some staff also volunteered their time to cook and serve at the Our Daily Bread kitchen. South Slocan’s Debra Storey (left) and Sylvia van’t Kruis (right) recently presented Pastor Gordon Malcolm of Our Daily Bread (middle) with the donation.
