Synergy Credit Union is teaming up with local businesses to show love to local non-profits.
Synergy is donating $29,500 through its “Synergy Shares” program to food banks in the eleven communities they work in by providing gift cards to local grocery stores. These donations then had 10 per cent added to them by stores like the Lloydminster, Kinderserly and Delta Co-Ops, as well as AG Foods in Maidstone and Graham’s Foods in St. Walburg.
The donations will provide assistance to dozens of local groups, such as the Salvation Army Food Bank, Olive Tree, Lloydminster Men’s Shelter, Lloydminster Interval Home, Lloydminster Native Friendship Centre, Lloydminster Drop-in Centre, Bea Fisher, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Lloydminster Sexual Assault Services, Lloydminster and Area Brain Injury Society, Libbie Young Centre, Kindersley Food Bank, Macklin Food Bank, Denzil Catholic Women’s League, Midwest Cupboard, Maidstone Food Bank, Manitou Evangelical Free Church Food Pantry, and St. Walburg and Area Food Pantry.
Synergy CEO Glenn Stang says that this donation will help people most in need, and they were happy to join forces with local partners to make it happen.
Recently, the credit union also provided $27,500 to the Lloydminster and Maidstone Hospitals, for them to get new PPE and other COVID-19 protection equipment. In addition, they’ve sent $2,500 to support frontline workers at the Kindersley and District Health and Wellness Foundation.
