Sarnia Christmas Lunch
Below is a picture from our Christmas luncheon in Sarnia. A donation was made to the Inn of the Good Shepherd.
Each employee of the credit union who participates in "Dress Down Fridays" through a donation is given an opportunity to donate to a charitable foundation of their choice. Once all branch donations are totalled for the year, the Board of Directors match collected funds, giving each branch one additional matching donation to a charity within the community. This is our way to thank each community for supporting Southwest Regional Credit Union.
