Lakeland Credit Union

At Lakeland Credit Union (LCU) an innovative and talented team truly committed to supporting meaningful causes are at the heart of our fundraising success. In 2015 our team is proud to partner with the Lakeland Catholic School Division (LCSD) to support their "Sowing Seeds of Justice" program. 

Affordable housing is hard to come by. LCSD has embarked on a very special journey of, “Sowing Seeds of Justice” which is now in its second year. This is a two-year district-wide initiative in which all staff and students have an opportunity to work together in partnership with Habitat for Humanity to provide a home for a family in need of affordable housing. The goals of this project are to increase our understanding of social justice, to heighten the awareness in our students of needs in our community and in the world, and to work in solidarity to answer the Gospel call to take care of our neighbours. The financial goal is to raise $100,000, which will go directly towards building this affordable home alongside Habitat for Humanity in the Cold Lake region. So far $25,000 has been raised!

7 LCSD schools along with 2 LCU branches will be joining together to raise funds and support this amazing program during Giving Tuesday 2015!
