ATM campaign helps food banks

Use a Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union Automated Teller Machine this December and support your local food banks

Use a Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union Automated Teller Machine this December and support your local food banks.

Ten cents from every transaction on all SASCU ATMs during December is donated to help support the Salvation Army Food Bank in Salmon Arm, the Eagle Valley Community Food Bank in Sicamous and the Sorrento Food Bank.

SASCU holds the fundraiser each year during the Christmas season as part of the credit union’s commitment to the communities it serves.

“Giving back to our communities is one of SASCU’s guiding principles,” says Michael Wagner, CEO of SASCU Financial Group.

“Since starting the December ATM fundraiser in 1996, SASCU has contributed over $62,000 to local food banks during the Christmas season. The Sicamous Community Christmas Dinner and the Family Resource Centre Gift Tree are also initiatives our staff are proud to support.”

Every December, a SASCU ATM withdrawal could also include a $50 bill instead of a $20.

The $50 bills are hidden in each ATM to thank the community for supporting the campaign.

There are 10 SASCU ATMs in the Shuswap located at its branches, the Mall at Piccadilly, Centenoka Park Mall and the Tim Hortons at the top of the hill.

SASCU ATMs are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at all locations.

The branches are located in Salmon Arm, Sicamous and Sorrento with two locations in Salmon Arm.
