Over $23,000 is getting split between several food banks in the Peace Region after the success of an inaugural holiday campaign.

According to a release sent out this week, Lake View Credit Union Foundation’s ‘Help for the Holidays’ campaign has split $23,821 to the following non-profits:

Each location received around a $4,000 donation from the campaign.

The credit union also upped their initial matching donation of $10,000 to $12,500 once they realized the original amount was on route to be surpassed.

In previous years, the company had a Christmas Stocking Raffle with proceeds going to local charities. They switched up the campaign this year due to COVID-19 and moved the initiative online.

“We have so much gratitude to those throughout the community that donated and made the most of our matching donation commitment. I hope they appreciate the difference their generosity makes in the lives of their neighbours and this community,” says LVCU CEO, Lori Archibald.

All donations received a charitable receipt from the Lake View Credit Union Foundation.
