B.C. communities are $245,000 stronger because of money raised by the staff of Coast Capital Savings.
“At Coast Capital Savings, we live to make our communities stronger and our annual United Way campaign is a great example of this,” said Wendy Lachance, director, community leadership for Coast Capital Savings. “The generosity of our staff will make a difference in our local communities by helping improve the lives of children, youth, and seniors living in isolation and poverty and there is no better time for this support than during the holidays.”
Coast Capital’s donation will help the United Way continue to support a broad range of programs focused on critical areas such as strengthening foundations for children, youth and families; supporting people living with health conditions and disabilities; assisting people living in poverty; and helping seniors remain healthy and connected to their community.
“Everyone should have a chance for a bright future. When we help others, our community is stronger,” said Michael Knight, president and CEO for the United Way of the Lower Mainland. “The remarkable generosity of an amazing group of donors and volunteers at Coast Capital Savings makes it all possible.”
Coast Capital employees participate in the United Way’s annual campaign each year and have contributed more than $1.2 million to the organization over the past five years.
