Alouette Addictions Services is $1,900 richer thanks to the BMO Bank of Montreal.

The Maple Ridge branch approved a grant of $1,500 to help develop and deliver to Alouette Addiction’s family support program, as well as raising $420 at a recent fundraising barbeque.

The BMO branch has been actively involved with Alouette Addictions for two years, hosting fundraising BBQs, working with their foundation to support grant applications and volunteering as key organizers and on site volunteers at the first-ever drag show held in Maple Ridge in February.

Haney branch manager Jayne Westwood said BMO is proud to be a supporter of Alouette Addictions.

“Helping out in the community has always been a focus and we recognize the smaller organizations who struggle for support,” said Westwood.

Annika Polegato, executive director at Alouette, said the donation is a big help in their fight to help overcome addictions.

“We provide all of these services free of charge,” said Polegato. “Anyone who is struggling with substance use or is affected by a loved ones use can come in for support. The funds raised by BMO Bank of Montreal, Haney Branch, will help us increase our programming for families affected by a loved ones substance use. We are beyond thrilled to have their ongoing support.”
