Local Families to Benefit from Bank Donation

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A boost Wednesday for a local youth program. RBC donated $25,000 to the Lethbridge YWCA's program to help children who witness family violence.

"This is a very, very worthwhile project," said John Arnold, RBC's vice president of commercial markets for Alberta southwest. "We like to support things that involve youth - not bricks and mortar, but programs. So this fit right in with our donation criteria."

The donation comes from RBC's charitable foundation. It makes up more than half the annual operating cost for the YWCA's Project Child Recovery program, which totals about $40,000. Geared for children aged six to 12 years old, the program is offered free of cost as a support group for children and families who need it.

"By working with the kids, we're able to change the cycle of family violence for the future," said Kristine Cassie, CEO of the Lethbridge YWCA. "The program was developed locally and is being used in other parts of Canada, so it's great to have this local investment as well." The group has also run the children's program in Fort Macleod and Blairmore.
