Western Financial “Support the Cause Walk” for Kimberley Special Care
Kimberley, BC… Each year, Western Financial Group employees from branches across Western Canada participate in the annual Support the Cause Walk which raises funds for Western Financial Group’s charitable arm, the Western Communities Foundation. All the funds raised in the Support the Cause Walk go towards the Western Communities Foundation’s three core programs which are infrastructure grants, matching grants and student bursaries.
For the Kimberley branch of Western Financial the matching grant program was a perfect fit for their team to get behind a cause that is dear to them the Kimberley Special Care Home.
Six team members completed the walk donating a gift of $432 for patient comforts for the residential care facility. Taking part in the fundraising event was Shannon McKinstry, Corinne Caldwell, Yuko Shimokata, Bernece Foreman, Tami Prasad and Dana Reimer.
The gift is being directed to EKFH’s Starlite Campaign which launched November 27. Donations from individuals, businesses and corporations are making the stars shine in support of community health care programs.
