New video illustrates how giving to the community gives back

VANCOUVER, Dec. 1 – Research shows that healthy starts in the early years lead to bright futures. This is something that credit unions in BC recognize and actively support.

Every year BC credit unions contribute 25 cents per member to the Success By 6 initiative, a unique partnership between United Ways of BC, Credit Unions of BC and the Ministry of Children and Family Development. This early childhood initiative is dedicated to providing all children in BC with a good start in life. In our region 8,882 Credit Union members have contributed $15,500 to date to the Success By 6 initiative.

To thank and recognize credit unions for their support, a video has been created. This informative and creative video will be officially launched on December 1, Canada’s Giving Tuesday.

Success By 6 BC

Success By 6 in BC is a unique, joint initiative of United Ways, Credit Unions of BC, the BC Government through the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD), and Aboriginal and community leaders.
