This is an exciting new campaign for LFS and our partners,’ Says Melody Garner, Director Advancement & Community Relations, “ it provides us with the opportunity to encourage people to spend time with their families through our communications while also raising money for our family support programs here at LFS. Our community partners are really stepping up and helping build strong families in Southern Alberta with their support of Family Month.”
The team at the Movie Mill has created a special combo for the month called the “Give Back” Combo. For each combo sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to LFS. At Two Guys and A Pizza Place, for every individual slice sold, a portion will be donated to LFS. Then at Gas King, they will be asking their clients to donate a $1.00 at time of purchase to support LFS. This provides a myriad of opportunities for people to help build strong families in Southern Alberta.
“We are happy to support organizations like LFS that help to address family issues at many levels in our area. We are a family run business, and know first-hand what strength in the home can provide for a community.”- Leonard Binning, Movie Mill Owner.
The campaign will run from February 3rd to February 28th. It also includes family friendly activities during the month such as the Lethbridge Family Services Night with the Lethbridge Hurricanes on February 6th and a special medieval themed family night of entertainment and dancing at the Generations Gala on February 27th. Tickets for both of these events can be purchased at Lethbridge Family Services or online by visiting www.lfsfamily.ca . These are great opportunities for you to connect with your family and make them a priority this month while helping support a local agency.
