Casual for a Cause

We love giving back

Casual for a Cause is a giving initiative in which our staff along with the staff of Biggar & Landis Insurance Services "pay" $5 per pay period to dress in jeans on Fridays.  We use the money raised to donate to specific groups in the area. The "causes" are nominated and voted on by participating staff members of the Biggar & District Credit Union and Biggar and Landis Insurance Services. This is a small  but meaningful way the staff chooses to give back to the communities they live in. 

Each year we make 12 donations (1 per month).
