Lake View Credit Union is pleased to announce that the Lake View Credit Union Foundation’s December fundraising campaign ‘Help for the Holidays’ exceeded expectations and has raised $23,821 for the benefit of regional food banks that serve those in need.
The board and staff were overjoyed by the positive response from throughout the region, to the extent that they upped their initial matching contribution from $10,000 to $12,500 once it became clear that community members donations were going to outpace the original commitment.
“We’re delighted with the results of the campaign and that we are able to help support such worthy originations.” Remarked LVCU CEO, Lori Archibald. She continued, “And we have so much gratitude to those throughout the community that donated and made the most of our matching donation commitment. I hope they appreciate the difference their generosity makes in the lives of their neighbors and this community.”
Board Chair John Kurjata was similarly pleased, stating “Upping Lake View’s matching donation commitment halfway through the campaign was a great problem to have and we truly appreciate all those who donated to help make this happen, along with our members, whose continuing confidence and patronage make initiatives like this possible.”
The proceeds will be split between the following beneficiaries:
· Networks Ministries
· Dawson Creek Salvation Army
· St. Mark’s Food Bank
· Tansi Friendship Centre in Chetwynd
· Tumbler Ridge Food Bank
· Pouce Coupe Food Bank
All donations received a charitable receipt from the Lake View Credit Union Foundation.
