Introducing the Servus Feel Good Movement
Let's get back to feeling good
Helping our members feel good is in our DNA. Our roots go back to a time of economic uncertainty when we worked together to overcome challenges and thrive financially – and that’s what we’ve done ever since! Now we've gone a step further. We launched the Servus Feel Good Movement to provide the financial and mental health support our members need to get back to feeling good, about money and life in general.

Feel Good Movement gifted nominees
Jonathan Gourlay - Calgary
"My fiancé has been 3D printing mask adapters for frontline workers and others in need - he has printed over 500 and counting to be donated locally and across Canada!! He is using his own money for supplies and refuses to accept payment of any kind.”
Indian Fusion - The Curry House
The restaurant, based in downtown Edmonton, has been feeding the homeless for free for over 4 years. Any person can knock on the back door and choose to get a vegetarian or non-vegetarian meal. They do not take monetary donations but do encourage patrons to make donations for winter clothing to the Hope Mission during cold Alberta Winters. COVID-19 has been really stressful as business is running at half the capacity but that still doesn't stop them from helping the needy!
Annie Marchie Anderson -Medicine Hat
"Annie is a Paramedic with AHS working in the Medicine Hat area. She has friends who have lost their jobs during the COVID crisis and has dealt with many people who are struggling with the changes in their day to days. She wanted to provide washable laundry bags for front line health care workers and first responders to use to help reduce the risk of exposing their own families via a used uniform. Together they created 700 cloth laundry bags(in just 2 days!). As a group, they have since provided these bags to all workers in Medicine Hat, Brooks, Bow Island, Lethbridge and Taber areas."
Randy Morale - Lloydminster
"Randy is anew Canadian citizen in March who has worked in Lloyd for a number of years but suffered a stroke years ago that left him in a wheelchair unable to walk or function independently. His wife Megan is primary earner and caretaker in the home. Randy is home alone till Megan is home to assist him. One of the things on Randy’s wish list he is saving for is a concrete ramp at his home so he could access outside in his wheelchair."
Who's on Third
A business that's been helping others during these tough times. Chris is the owner of Who's on Third in Redcliff and he had a fabulous idea to help boost the spirit of those who live in the community. Chris organized the first pop up FREE drive-in movie night on April 18, 2020. Chris worked with AHS and the RCMP to create a safe environment (cars 6 ft apart, windows up at all times, no food or drinks provided and no washroom facilities open). With approvals in place, in a town of about 5600, 350 cars attended, and the overwhelming feedback was that this was a huge success! Kudos to Chris and his creative approach to bringing joy to his community during the pandemic!
