What is True North Strong Communities?
It’s the first initiative of its kind here in the North – a gathering place to donate to local projects, programs and charities across our region. Here, you can lend your support to a number of worthwhile causes, create a campaign of your own or learn more about becoming a Northern Credit Union Ambassador.
Launched by Northern Credit Union, True North Strong Communities is an opportunity for us to all come together and do some good, right here at home. Because together, we can do more than we ever could alone.
