“We are grateful to have the support of Western Financial Group and its customers. Your donations will help support Habitat homebuilding efforts across Canada while providing youth with an opportunity to gain valuable trade and life skills – and help us continue our work partnering with Indigenous communities to build safe places to call home. Through our new partnership, we look forward to continuing Western’s legacy of building stronger communities.”
