In Our Community

Reddy Kilowatt Credit Union is joining a collective effort by credit unions across the province, our Atlantic region, and as far away as, Kansas City. We are participating in the #loyal2localchallenge in which we hope to spark a wave of support for our local community by empowering employees and directors to give back. 

Each individual is being given $25 to make a small purchase from locally-owned businesses or a donation to charity between June 15th and June 28th. They’re also being asked to share their stories on social media, tagging the business or charity in order to give increased exposure among their personal networks. Additional funds have also been provided by our credit union partners, Atlantic Central/League Savings and Mortgage/League Data enabling an extra small purchase or donation per employee. 

It’s no surprise that small businesses have taken a terrible hit with COVID-19 and we all know that local businesses do so much to generate revenue, jobs and make an overall significant contribution to our local economy. As a local business ourselves, credit unions were built by communities for communities so joining this challenge is a very natural fit for us. #loyal2localchallenge aligns extremely well with credit unions’ guiding values and principles.  

We believe #loyal2localchallenge is a wonderful example of credit unions working together to create true impact for our local businesses and communities.
