Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) March 03, 2015
As part of the Western Gives Back program, Western International Securities recently contributed $5,000 to the Alliance for Children’s Rights (The Alliance) in Los Angeles. The Alliance is the leading nonprofit organization in Los Angeles County devoted solely to providing children living in poverty with permanency through adoption and legal guardianship, access to healthcare and an equitable education.
Their primary objective is to provide stability to foster children and those at risk of entering foster care. For those youth who do age out of the system without a family, they have built a core program designed to give this population the tools and guidance they need to live independently.
Western Gives Back is a donation program whereby Western Team Members are given the opportunity to submit the name of their favorite charity for a drawing that takes place at their Team Meetings. In this instance, the Alliance for Children’s Rights was submitted by Western team member Norma Negrete. “This group is doing incredible things in and around L.A. for kids, and I’m very pleased that we’re able to assist them in their work to help create safe and permanent homes where children can thrive,” Ms. Negrete said.
Don Bizub, Chief Executive Officer of Western International Securities said, “It is a pleasure to donate to an organization such as the Alliance for Children’s Rights, whose primary objective is protecting the rights of impoverished, abused and neglected children and youth.”
