The staff at the Western Financial Group Drumheller office proudly presented a cheque for over $877.00 from the Western Communities Foundation to the ‪#‎DrumFoundation‬ , to use at the Drumheller Health Centre to help purchase the Emergency Room's new Trauma Stretcher.
Roxanne Clark, Assistant Branch Manager of the Western Financial Group/Drumheller-Morrin-Hanna said that this donation was to express their appreciation and demonstrate their support for the western communities... "where we live and work." The Western Communities Foundation was founded in 2002.
Roxanne went on to say, “Our mission is to give back to the communities that we live and work in through a variety of charitable programs focused on public health, public housing, education and recreation.
This year, we were pleased to partner with the Drumheller Area Health Foundation and contribute $877.00 to their efforts to purchase a trauma stretcher for the ER. The Foundation is a perfect example of donating to programs focused on public health in our community."
The staff at the Drumheller Western Financial Group branch contribute to Casual Fridays, paying $2 to wear jeans throughout the year as well as having small fundraisers such as bake sales and BBQs. Annually, on the last Wednesday in May, you’ll see their staff doing a 5K walk on Support the Cause day to raise awareness and collect donations for the Foundation. Western donates $50 for each employee that participates, as well as matching individual fundraising efforts within the branch.
Past recipients of the grant include the Badlands Community Facility, defibrillators for the Drumheller Memorial Arena and Drumheller Kidsport.
