Stay, shop, eat, bank -- 'Embrace Local'

The Alpine Grind -- "Embracing Local" -- NDCU employee with John Snelgrove.

During the pandemic, Rosslanders have proven that as a community, helping is at our heart. Our local branch of the Nelson and District Credit Union (NDCU) is part of that, and is urging people to support local businesses, to ensure they thrive during these unprecedented times. Being an active part of our communities keeps us all economically vibrant and healthy.

The NDCU has issued a press release about their “Embrace Local” campaign. The release says,

“We are encouraging our NDCU small business members to post the Embrace Local decal on their storefront windows, work vehicles or wherever they feel NDCU and community members can see it. By making the community aware that Credit Union members are open for business can create more impact for the community they serve.

“At NDCU, we understand that many of our members are facing challenging times right now. Members helping members, community helping community, is the best way our Credit Union can help keep local businesses viable during this COVID era.

“NDCU sees it as a great opportunity to ensure we are doing our best to achieve our Mission of “Enriching Lives Locally.”

“Local businesses create 4.6 X more impact and recirculate $63 out of every $100 back into the local economy*.At NDCU, we want to help improve that statistic.”

Keep an eye out for this decal and Embrace Local! -- for a healthy recovery.
