"Scotiabank is thrilled to announce a unique and important partnership with Lethbridge Family Services. Through a corporate donation and our Scotiabank in the Community initiative, we will be making two sizeable donations to Lethbridge Family Services. We are excited to become the first grandparent donor to the agency and help address the needs of the disabled as well as the placement process of Syrian refugees in our community."- Russel Jensen, Branch Manager with Scotiabank
Every year, donations from private funders and corporate partners are needed to help LFS meet the needs of the most vulnerable populations. These donated funds are used to help provide wrap around supports, new programs, upgraded equipment, new technology, and capital improvements. Without private and corporate donations, the support that LFS provides to the most vulnerable populations would be very difficult to conduct as the agency would not have all of the resources required to help Southern Albertans.
“Corporate donations, like this amazing investment that Scotiabank is making to our agency, are key in helping local individuals and families receive the extra support they need. We are so grateful to have Scotiabank as a partner for the agency and look forward to continuing to support the most vulnerable populations by providing even more opportunities for them because of this donation.” Melody Garner, Director Advancement & Community
