Christmas Bureau receives large cheque

Big Bear Energy donates to their community

Big Bear Energy Services donated $5, 000 to the Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau this year as a thank you to the community for supporting the local business. The business has been part of the community for the past 15 years, with many staff members living in the area.

Lorraine Shewchuck, executive assistant for Big Bear shared why the company chose the Bureau.

“Children and families deserve to have a great Christmas, regardless of the hurdles life from time to time throws at all of us, which is why Big Bear choose to contribute to the Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau at this special time of year,” she wrote in an email.

The Christmas Bureau collects donations of gifts and cash, and uses them to provide support to those in need at this time of year.

“We feel strongly about and appreciate all the hard work that The Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau and the other local nonprofit organizations do for others and we are delighted to support the community that Big Bear is proud to call home,” Shewchuck wrote.
