As reported in the 2017 Northwestern Alberta’s Vital Signs food banks throughout Northwestern Alberta continue to respond to the increased needs from local families, seniors, and newcomers.
“As a single mom with only one income, I cannot tell you how much it means to me to have this support,” says Sexsmith resident.
Committed to making our communities stronger, the Community Foundation continues to invest grant funding into the region with the intent of easing the stress for all. We do this as a result of caring people who recognize the power of working together in support of local challenges.
Volunteers from Sexsmith and area, West County communities, plus Peace River and the surrounding region have come together to create a Regional Community Foundation in support of the communities they call home. These passionate members bring knowledge to the table and have a pulse on their communities. The Foundation’s set up as an endowment fund where donations of all sizes are pooled together in perpetuity and dedicated to ongoing funding support for charitable causes in the region.
“The partnership with the Community Foundation has helped people in the Sexsmith area give back in an easy, flexible and effective manner. As a result of the donations and support of local people, we are able to offer support to our local food bank, library and so many worthy needs. Thank you to the community foundation team for the support and leadership, you make our role easy.” said Aaron Anderson, the Foundation’s co-chair of the Sexsmith and District Community Foundation.
