You let us know what community category mattered most to you so that we could donate $5,000 to an organization within the winning category.

We’re thrilled to announce that the winning category was Health & Wellness. That means a $5,000 donation to the Canadian Mental Health Association – SK Division which they plan to use for the H.O.P.E. Learning Centre.

If you were able to cast a vote in our community poll, thank you! It truly speaks to how wonderful you are and how much your community means to you. Missed voting? You can still let us know which category means the most to you and we’ll keep this in mind for our next large donation!

    In 2020, despite the challenges faced due to the global pandemic, we invested $504,731 into our communities, amounting to 2.13% of pre-tax profits. Our main priority was to continue to support you and your community at a time when it’s needed the most. 

    In lieu of corporate Christmas gifts, we donated $35,000 to food banks in our regions. This amounted to over 13,000 lbs. of food supplied to the Swift Current Salvation Army, the Battlefords District Food & Resource Centre, the Meadow Lake Salvation Army Food Bank, the Door of Hope Meadow Lake Food Bank, the Regina & District Food Bank, and the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. 

    In support of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Battlefords, we invested $15,000 to support two programs: the Innovation Credit Union Grub Club, and the Innovation Credit Union Saturday Program. However, due to COVID-19 the Boys & Girls Clubs redirected these funds to a Pandemic Support Service, which delivered 4,084 meals to children and youth in need. 

    We supported The Center, investing $7,500 to support two programs: the Innovation Credit Union Thursday Meal Program and The Center Refresh. With the impact of COVID-19, the Center used the funds from the Thursday Meal Program to provide free takeaway meals for youth, families, and seniors within Swift Current. 

    We were thrilled to partner with the United Way, investing $7,500 to establish the iRead Book Worms Program. The program is committed to moving the needle on childhood literacy. As a result of our support, 250 students from Kindergarten to Grade 3 participated in a fun, interactive, 5-week program and received a literacy tool kit. The kit contained an assortment of self-directed, interactive tools for the children to engage and learn independently to help prepare them for their return to school in the fall.
