Every year, Lakewood Chevrolet donates to various local and international charities. We love giving back to the community and helping others. We have chosen 5 non-profit organizations this year that we will be supporting, we hope that with our help we can bring more awareness to these organizations
Win4Skin is an annual fundraiser consisting of a Banquet and other fundraising events held in the community. The funds help out not one, but two important causes. The Owen Schlosser Endowment fund, which helps youth access sports who would not otherwise have the opportunity to do so. The other being the Mary Johnston Chair in Melanoma Research. the Funds go towards Melanoma Cancer research at the Cross Cancer Institution in Edmonton. This organization was chosen by our Finance Director, Erin Healy, who had a friend that passed away from Melanoma Cancer and another friend who created this organization. The organization started up among a small number of friends for a street hockey match and had continued on to grow each year!
Many Children and Youth in Canada struggle with societal barriers and faced adversities in their lives. Such as detrimental living conditions, family violence, risk factors for mental health, school issues and identity challenges. These circumstances have nothing to do with the value of who they are or who they have become. As a result of these situations, children and youth risk not having the opportunity to live up to their full potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a community – supported organization committed to the healthy development of children, youth, and their families. They provide safe places, positive relationships, services and opportunities to develop personal strengths and interpersonal skills that enhance their long-term success in life. Our Pre-Owned Inventory & Delivery Manager, Tariq Dharshi suggested this organization because he and his wife had volunteered to become a Big Brother & Sister. They were matched with a young boy and had the enjoyment of watching him grow for 4 years.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta supports families seeking vital medical treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Their warm, compassionate house provides a home-away-from-home for families who require travel for medical treatment. When those families are experiencing one of the most difficult times in their life, The Ronald McDonald House offers them the gift of togetherness. This organization was also chosen by Tariq Dharshi.
