Vancity Grant and Cheque Presentation
$10,000 cheque presentation to Sources Rent Bank
In January 2013, Gerry Collins Manager of the Surrey City Centre Community Branch of Vancity, presented a $10,000 cheque for the Sources Rent Bank.
Vancity has been a supporter of the Rent Bank since 2008. The financial institution provided funds to facilitate the transition from idea to reality. The SRB opened in 2010 and has provided over 150 loans to low-income renters to keep them and their families in their homes.
The Sources Rent Bank relies on funding from the Community: businesses, foundations, loan repayments and private citizens.
Sources acknowledges the on-going support from Vancity Credit Union.
