ScotiaBank Builds A Brighter Future for Families
October 16, 2014
This week has been an exciting week for youth and vulnerable populations of Lethbridge and Southern Alberta thanks to the ScotiaBank Brighter Future Program. Cheques totaling $8,123 were given to Lethbridge Family Services to help support the agency in delivering support and services to over 5,500 people every year. ScotiaBank South, headed by Jill Reid, contributed just shy of $4,000 through their help with selling raffle tickets for the, Building the Family Raffle. This was a trip for four to Disneyland at a value of $3,800 and was drawn for in September. Dean Myktiw was the winner. The bank was able to match ticket sales for the raffle and contribute more through the Brighter Future Program. In addition, ScotiaBank Main branch on 3rd Avenue, headed up by Russel Jensen and Le-Anna Currie, donated over $4,000 through the Brighter Future Program to the agency. They partnered to sell the Our Family’s Kitchen Cookbook that was created by the Immigrant Services department of Lethbridge Family Services and was sold during the month of August and September.
