Highwood Wildrose Constituency Association Gives Generously To Community Services

Written by April Bouchard

The Highwood Wildrose Constituency Association showed an abundance of generosity in downtown Okotoks yesterday afternoon by presenting three community service organizations with $5000 donations.

Kerri Wilkinson, Program Manager for the Foothills Regional Victim Services, says volunteers work very hard to fund raise for these programs, and this donation will be a significant help to fund the services they offer.

“We’ve done golf tournaments and casinos to raise funds, so donations like this are certainly very much appreciated,” said Wilkinson.

Wilkinson says Victim Services volunteers go through extensive training to assist victims of crime or tragedy, and are partnered with the RCMP detachments throughout the MD of Foothills, as well as the northern end of Willow Creek. While about 60 per cent of their funding comes from grants, they still have an additional 40 per cent to come up with.
