Lakeland Animal Shelters Receive Boost

Lakeland area animal shelters had recently sent out appeals for support, and those appeals were answered in part by employees at a local company.

Lakeland Credit Union Cold Lake employees donated $969.92 to the Lakeland Humane Society in Cold Lake, and the SPCA in Bonnyville received a $2,910.34 donation from Lakeland Credit Union Bonnyville employees.

Employees made the donation through their company-wide Care Wear program, which grants employees the privilege of wearing jeans to work in exchange for a $2 weekly donation to charity. Every six months, the staff votes to decide which local non-profit will receive the funds.

“As employees, we are committed to the communities where we live, work, and play. The Care Wear program is a chance for employees to get personally involved in community engagement. A lot of us have a real soft spot for animals, so we’re happy to help out the SPCA and Humane Society in their time of need,” said Giselle Pereira, member relations coordinator for Lakeland Credit Union.

Since its inception in 2006, the Lakeland Credit Union Care Wear program has donated over $65,000 to local charities.
