A local credit union is letting members decide to which charity it should give a large donation.

The North Peace Savings and Credit Union is asking members to vote online to choose between seven charities with the winner receiving a $30,000 donation.

The money is part of the Credit Union’s $120,000 budget for Social Responsibility, says General Manager Mitchell Chilcott.

Chilcott says the rest of the money will be available for other organizations which approach the credit union.

The eligible charities are the Fort Nelson Hospital Foundation, the Hudson’s Hope Lions Club, the Fort St. John Child Development Centre, the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation, the Fort St. John Royal Canadian Legion, the North Peace Community Resources Society and SCARS.

Eligible voting members are those who were part of the Credit Union prior to Dec. 20 and who are at least 18 years-old.

Credit Union members can go to and login to vote for a charity. Members can vote between Jan. 24 and 28.
