Worthy volunteer group receives a $1,150 donation from Terrace credit union branch

WHEN people get lost in the area, it’s the Terrace Search and Rescue organization that invariably gets the call.

The work the volunteers do, says Northern Savings Credit Union chair Nirmal Parmar, in announcing a donation to the group, is all important.

The donation is for $1,150 and was one of 13 presented during Credit Union Week, Oct. 15-19.

Each of the four credit union branches within the Northern Savings network received $15,000 to distribute.

Parmar, a Terrace resident, noted the contributions made by community organizations.

On behalf of the board and employees, I want you to know how much we value the work that you do that is enriching the lives of our communities.” he said.
