Salmon Arm’s Innovation Centre has received a $125,000 power-up courtesy of the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union.
The contribution is part of a 10-year sponsorship agreement that comes with a name change to the colourful downtown building, now the Innovation Centre Powered by SASCU.
“We are pleased to be a part of this great initiative in this way,” comments SASCU board chair Barry Johnson in a related news release. “What SAEDS (Salmon Arm Economic Development Society) are doing and will do with the Innovation Centre Powered by SASCU strongly aligns with our strategy to contribute to the economic health of the Shuswap, in particular to that of our region’s youth.”
Innovation Centre Powered by SASCU chair Chad Shipmaker noted how the building was once home to the credit union.
“This is a legacy to SASCU…,” said Shipmaker. “This is a massive contribution that is greatly appreciated by all the stakeholders that helped make this a reality.”
