A donation of $1 to the Coastal Community Credit Union’s Just Say Yes campaign provides young people with leadership experience.

Part of International Co-op Week, the credit union’s fundraiser helps local youth attend YES Camp, a leadership retreat in Lake Cowichan.

In appreciation, donors will receive a copy of the 2012 edition of Island Gems, a calendar featuring photos of Island locations taken by Coastal Community employees.

“We’re thrilled to once again be helping enrich the lives of local youth through YES Camp sponsorships,” said Susanne Jakobsen, Coastal Community’s board chairwoman. “And we greatly appreciate everyone’s support.”

In celebration of International Credit Union Day today (Oct. 20), Coastal Community’s members and clients are invited to join employees and board members at local branches for prizes and refreshments throughout the day.
