Big Bear Energy makes a big donation to Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau

Big Bear Energy recently gave a donation to help families in need this holiday season

As a member of the Sylvan Lake community for 17 years, Big Bear Energy Services has felt the warmth and neighbourliness as a local business. We want to show our support and appreciation to our community members by giving back generously this Christmas season.

Children and families deserve to celebrate Christmas together, regardless of financial barriers, which is why we choose to contribute to The Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau. The Bureau collects donations from throughout the local community, and redistributes the items to those in need.

Our $1,000 donation will help families around Sylvan Lake to be able to provide their children with clothing or toys they may need or want during this special time of year.

We feel strongly about the work that The Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau does for others, and we are delighted to donate back to the community that has been so good to us over the past years.
