May 12, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Edmonton, Alberta May 12, 2011 Patron West, a Canadian equipment leasing and financing company, announced today its support and recognition of the Winnifred Stewart Association (WSA). As a proud partner of the Winnifred Stewart Association, Patron West would like to highlight the important role this organization plays within the Edmonton community, and encourage fellow Edmontonians to participate in the WSA's Empties to Winn program.

This fundraising program allows the WSA to offer important support programs to individuals with disabilities in Edmonton.

"It feels good to know that the contributions we make to the Winnifred Stewart Association every month go directly to helping Edmontonians with disabilities live better lives. Also, the program is so well-run we are able to count on the scheduled bottle pick ups to ensure our company's workplace stays tidy." Ryan Risling, Patron West President.

When an individual or a business signs up for the Empties to Winn program they will be supplied with recycling bags and a bag stand with which they can begin to collect their recyclable beverage containers. During the scheduled pick up times, the Winnifred Stewart Association will pick up the bags of cans and bottles in exchange for a $16 tax receipt. This program is an easy and effective way to rid your home of clutter, help the environment and also help your fellow Edmontonians. Sign up today with the Winnifred Stewart Association and make a positive impact on your city.

An integral part of the Edmonton community, the Winnifred Stewart Association has been empowering individuals with disabilities for over 55 years by helping them accomplish their goals and lead fulfilling lives. The organization supports their clients by offering a number of recreational and leisure programs, residential services and employment support services. The Winnifred Stewart Association is able to offer these services in part because of their ingenious (and environmentally-friendly!) fundraising programs.
