Here in Wainwright, we firmly believe in the mission of the Western Communities Foundation. We strive for any opportunity that will help us impact the community in a positive manner, whether it is to do with infrastructure or helping the people in the community.
In the past 3 years, the Wainwright branch has been able to make a huge impact on our community due to Support the Cause and the Western Communities Foundation. In 2015, our branch raised a total of $4,839.95 – half of which we were able to donate to the Teaching Independence and Parent Support Program (TIPS) here in Wainwright. In 2015, we were also able to apply for and receive a $5,000 Infrastructure Grant toward new outdoor fitness equipment in one of our public parks.
In 2016, we were able to raise $7,088 for Support the Cause. A total of $3,544 was donated to the Battle River Food Bank. We were also fortunate this year to have been granted the $750.00 Bursary for a local high school graduate to go toward his post-secondary education.
The Western Communities Foundation and Support the Cause will be something that Wainwright continues to support with passion in the coming years.
