The Western Financial Group branch took their passion for the cause one step further by purchasing 31 teddy bears that will be given out to child victims when needed. Western Communities Foundation, Western Financial Group’s charitable arm, is proud to continue to support our local communities.
“We love to do what we can to contribute positively to our local community,” said Bortolotto.
“Cold Lake Victim Services is a pillar of our community, helping our most vulnerable in times of extreme need. It is so important to be able to give back and we couldn’t think of a better way to share some positivity.”
