Local insurance agencies donate $100,000 to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation

Dyck Insurance and Wawanesa partnered for the generous donation.

Dyck Insurance and Wawanesa Insurance partnered to donate to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation as part of their “We Care About Our Communities” initiative.

“We chose the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation during this very different and difficult year of 2020 to assist with their Phase 2 Capital Campaign,” says Rob Dyck with Dyck Insurance. “The Foundation does wonderful work in our community as they assure state of the art and life saving healthcare for many individuals.”

Dyck Insurance has been part of the Wetaskiwin community for over 40 years and the Dyck family has lived in the Wetaskiwin area for nearly 50 years. Frank Dyck was also an original board member for the Wetaskiwin Hospital Foundation in 1986.

“With this being a very challenging year for our front-line health care workers, it’s appropriate that this donation comes during this time,” says Rob Dyck. “We are proud to support the Foundation and all the work they do to keep our citizens healthy.”
