Summerland Credit Union makes a comfortable donation

Four groups have benefited from Comort for a Cause campaign

The Summerland Credit Union has come up with a comfortable way to raise money for charity, and the latest recipient is Discovery House in Penticton.

This month, the credit union presented representatives of Discovery House with a cheque for $948, raised through the October to December portion of their Comfort for a Cause Campaign.

Through the Comfort for a Cause campaign, staff make a donation every Friday to wear jeans to work. The credit union matches these donations. In 2018, the campaign raised a total of $3452, benefiting four local non-profit organizations.

Discovery House provides addiction services and sober housing for men in the community, with many clients coming from Summerland.
