The Fort Saskatchewan Victim Services unit is getting help from Inter Pipeline in a neighbourly way.
Inter Pipeline will donate a total of $30,000 to the victim services unit.
“We’re really excited to announce that we have been given a legacy donation of $10,000 for the next three years from Inter Pipeline,” said victim services unit program manager Lauren Reid.
They will use the money for a variety of things.
“We have lots of big plans. We need to grow our program as Fort Saskatchewan and area has grown so has the demands of our program,” said Reid. “This is going to help us better train our advocates and provide emergency items and transportation for victims of crime and a lot of other things.”
The announcement came at the units board meeting in the second week of May.
“It just shows their commitment to the community and their saying is, they have a commitment to being a good neighbour and I feel this really shows that,” she added.
