The staff at Vision Credit Union have demonstrated their community service and raised money for Grandma’s Den.

On Oct. 30, branch manager Helene Chalifoux and the staff presented a cheque for $1,000 to Carol L’Abbe, the director of Grandma’s Den in Falher.

“It was our was of giving back to the community,” says Chalifoux.

L’Abbe gratefully acknowledges the donation.

“We definitely appreciate the donation,” says L’Abbe. “We’ll definitely be able to put it to good use.”

Vision Credit Union held a lunch in the branch on Oct. 19, as part of Credit Union Day.

The staff served a beef-on-a-bun lunch to approximately 150 people. They raised $500 and their head office matched it, to provide $1,000 to Grandma’s Den.

This was the first year for the beef-on-a-bun lunch and Vision Credit Union hopes to make it an annul event, says Chalifoux.
