Pay It Forward – Chili For Chase

The staff of Crossroads Credit Union in Canora are so motivated by the outpouring of support for the Chase Kraynick Splash Park that they had to get on board in a meaningful way.  We thank Linda Osachof for sharing this Pay It Forward story of yet another community-minded local business with creative ideas for making a difference in their community.

Each Friday, staff gets to “dress down” and the proceeds of funds raised for the privilege of working in comfort will be going to the splash park.

Staff have also invited members to “share the spare change” and boxes have been set up on the line for just that purpose.  Crossroads members have been very generous, and the totals will also go to the park.

The most fun staff has had was in preparing and serving “Chili for Chase” on Thursday.  The wonderful aroma of spicy chili filled the Credit Union and 150 bowls were served to customers as a warm and welcome treat on a cool autumn day.  A total of $645 was raised through this event and will also go towards the splash park.

Credit unions have a long history of community giving and have donated to many projects.  This one has particularly drawn everyone together….board, management, staff, members and community all joining together for such a worthy cause!
