Food Bank and Victim Services

Over $5,000 donated to local charities!

Bonnyville/Cold Lake, Alberta, October 2013 Lakeland Credit Union staff were proud to raise over $5,000 in 6 months, which was shared with two very deserving not-for-profit organizations in the Lakeland!  Bonnyville Victim Services was the honoured recipient of $3,440!  In Cold Lake the staff donated $1,776 to the Tritown Emergency Food Bank!  As we approach the Christmas season both organizations expressed their gratitude for the donations at this critical time of the year.

Congratulations to both organizations, and a big thank you to all the staff that made this possible!

Every week, more than 80 employees at Lakeland Credit Union each donate $2 to raise funds for local causes through the ‘Care Wear’ program.  The staff in each branch then vote every six months for a charity in the community they feel could use the funds.  “We choose where the money is donated, and I think that’s great!” said Ronda Morin, staff member at Lakeland Credit Union.

To date staff have donated nearly $50,000 to local charitable causes in the Lakeland.
