Comox Valley Family Services Association was fortunate to have First Credit Union staff come for their 2nd year to volunteer; this time it was to assist with our Community Gardens, located across from our Healthy Families location at 1507C McPhee Avenue, Courtenay.
According to First Credit Union they feel Community Impact Day is ''an opportunity to lend a hand and show gratitude to some of the remarkable non-profit organizations that work every day for the benefit of others'.
In 2015 they celebrated an inaugural Community Impact Day, where they closed branches from 2 to 5pm to allow all 140 of their staff to work as volunteers in their community. That year for those 3 hours they volunteered a total of 420 hours and served 22 different non-profit organizations.They have since made Community Impact Day an annual event.
Please see the attached photos. It was a productive and fun day and allowed us to get things done in the garden we would not have had time to get done easily.
We are looking forward to having First Credit Union come next year in 2018.
