Kootenay Savings donates to East Kootenay Foundation for Health

With the importance at health care never more apparent than in the midst of a global pandemic, Kootenay Savings has stepped up and committed $20,000 to local healthcare, donating $10,000 to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health, and $10,000 to the KBRH Health Foundation’s COVID-19 Greatest Need Fund.
