Vernon Credit Union Supports Red Cross Relief Efforts in British Columbia Flood – Vernon Morning Star

Vernon Credit Union supports Red Cross relief efforts during flooding in British Columbia

VantageOne and Other Credit Unions Encourage Customers to Donate to Help Those Affected by Flooding

A Vernon-based financial institution has partnered with the Canadian Red Cross to help victims of recent floods and landslides in southern British Columbia.

VantageOne Credit Union joins with credit unions across Canada to come together in support of the Canadian Red Cross and those affected by the storms.

The Canadian Red Cross works to bring aid to people in and around affected areas as quickly as possible and to provide humanitarian assistance for new needs as they arise. The money raised will allow the Red Cross to carry out relief, recovery, resilience and risk reduction activities in and beyond the region at individual and community levels.

“At times like these, we remember that we are friends, family, neighbors and community partners,” said Glenn Benischek, President and CEO of VantageOne Credit Union. “Our communities are ultimately stronger when we come together to support each other. On behalf of VantageOne Credit Union, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for your generous donations.

By the end of the afternoon of Wednesday, November 24, more than $ 5,400 had been donated.

VantageOne opened in Vernon in 1944. There are also branches in Armstrong, Edgewood and Peachland.
