Tolko Donates $18,000 to Two Youth Organizations in Williams Lake

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Williams Lake has received $9,000 from Tolko’s Lakeview and Soda Creek Divisions.

Tolko announced last week that they launched a community investment program to support 20 not-for-profit organizations in the communities in which they operate in Western Canada, with local employees defining a list of groups that serve the health, wellness, and protection of youth.

Melissa Newberry is the Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters.

“To me it’s really encouraging that they recognized our that our organization is an integral part of the community and that people value mentoring because mentoring is a preventative opportunity for youth and children in Williams Lake.”
