Lowerys teams up with the Dilico Children's Foundation to create bursaries for First Nations youth
The Christie family is passionate about Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario. As the owners of Lowerys they have created a successful office solutions company which is currently undergoing some exciting new changes. Lowerys is constantly striving to work with customers to ensure they accomplish their goals.
Shawn Christie is involved in a number of Thunder Bay charities however, when the opportunity to support First Nations youth arose, he was thrilled at the chance to get involved. "We understand the importance and value of giving back to the community,” Christie says. “We want to make a difference and are happy to support organizations who share our obsession of ensuring Thunder Bay is a healthy and vibrant community for everyone living here.”
Aboriginal youth are currently the fastest-growing demographic group in Canada and as such, it is important that they are fully equipped to play a role in the future of our country’s economy. Lowerys believes that a lack of funds should not stand in the way of the educational and career aspirations of Dilico’s youth.
The Dilico Children’s Foundation is pleased to have the Lowerys team on board by supporting the Rising Eagle Bursary Fund, which is an option for children involved with Dilico each year who face challenges when pursuing their education and becoming gainfully employed.
