In Our Community

Being locally based and locally owned, Credit Unions play a major role in fostering community well-being. Our success is directly related to the success of our communities, that’s why our profits stay in the local area, reinvested in our local economies, and that is why we work to improve the local quality of life. LaHave River Credit Union, is committed to giving back to our community. Supporting our local suppliers and businesses for products and services, is one way we support our community, volunteering our time and efforts is another.

The Credit Union staff and board support the following events and associations, either by volunteering personal time or by donating & raising funds in their individual communities.
