Helping keep spirits bright and communities strong
Millar Western works to support healthy communities throughout the year, but the holidays are special: a time to offer support where needed and share where we can. Yesterday, Kelvin Kostyniuk and Lynn Bartlett of our Fox Creek sawmill met with Roxanne Grumback of the Fox Creek Food bank to present a donation of $5,000, one contribution among the $28,000 we gave this month to Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, Edmonton, Fox Creek and Whitecourt food banks. In all, we’ve provided more than $60,000 in funding and materials this holiday season, to groups ranging from Santas Anonymous to the Alexander First Nation Christmas hamper program, Amiskwaciy Academy, E.C.H.O. Society, Tenille’s Hope, United Way, University Hospital Foundation, Youth Emergency Support Services (YESS), the YWCA, and others. Some of those in-kind contributions included Christmas turkeys given by the company to employees, who have gave them in turn to people in greater need.
We thank all Millar Western people for the hard work that made these donations possible, and for the generosity and community spirit they show each year. And from everyone at Millar Western to all our friends and neighbours, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and best wishes for a safe and healthy 2022!
