*************************
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is here!

This June, join Grocer 4 Good (G4G) and Northern Credit Union as they participate for the first time in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge - a summer fundraising campaign put on by Canada Helps. Every dollar donated through the Canada Helps website, will enter G4G into the contest, providing chances for G4G to win up to $20,000 at the end of the month.

Northern Credit Union has pledged to match community donations up to $3,000, which will help fund G4G’s employee retention, growth and operations (and hopefully provide them with a better chance at winning the Canada Helps prize!).

“Helping our local communities is one of the most rewarding aspects of belonging to Northern Credit Union. We’re excited to participate alongside G4G and challenge those in the community to donate as well! We want to thank G4G for their investment in Sault Ste. Marie and look forward to seeing their continued growth” says Josh Ingram, Northern Credit Unions Community Outreach Manager.
