NORTHERN SAVINGS Credit Union is pleased to announce that through Northern Savings’ Community Reinvestment program, a corporate donation of $7,500 has been made to the Friends of Shames, My Mountain Co-op (MMC). MMC was formed to purchase the Shames Mountain ski area, which has provided a recreational playground for the residents of Northwest BC for the past 20 years.

Northern Savings’ Terrace branch manager, Grace Makowski states, “we felt that MMC has the same values and principles as the credit union, from the leadership roles taken on by numerous members of the community, to MMC’s focus on providing an environmentally sound recreational area which will benefit our communities now and for generations to come.”

Northern Savings Credit Union was incorporated in March 1940. From its very modest beginnings as a savings and loan cooperative, Northern Savings has built itself into the largest credit union in Northern BC with assets over $900 million, and a staff of over 180 dedicated professionals.

Northern Savings continually seeks opportunities to reinvest in the communities it serves through donations, Board Sponsorships and Community Reinvestment grants. Northern Savings is dedicated to assisting local organizations with the development of sustainable projects that will benefit the communities and the residents of Northwest BC.
