Scotiabank giving campaign supports CASASC

A Red Deer area Scotiabank raised funds to support the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre (CASASC).

The donation accepted on January 6 by Lara Alhmidat, CASASC Fundraising and Event Planner, was presented by Dipen Rathod of Scotiabank – Lancaster Centre.

Thank you so much for your support.

Scotiabank Supports CASASC

The Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre (CASASC) recently received a donation from Scotiabank.

CASASC Executive Director Patricia Arango (right) accepted the donation of $451 and comfort items from Scotiabank Business Advisor Jennifer Forrest (left) on January 19.

The generous donation, including items like blankets, journals and fuzzy socks, will be used for the CASASC SART program.

CASASC offers a 24-hour Sexual Assault Response Team (SART). This team is a collaborative partnership between CASASC and the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. Together support and treatment is provided to those who have experienced recent sexual assault.

The Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre completes sexual assault exams for anyone within the Central Alberta Region and is the main regional artery and contact for towns and cities between Edmonton and Calgary. If a survivor decides to seek medical support at the hospital, it is reassuring to know a trained team is there to meet them and provide the best patient care and support.

When in the hospital, the survivor may also choose to speak with a CASASC trained SART member, who provide information and support. SART members offer each individual a care package that includes comfort items like a blanket, slippers or socks, a journal or a stress ball.

These comfort items provide individuals with a small piece of solace during a trying time. Each pair of slippers or blanket provided show compassion, care and love from the community.

SART members are there not only to support the survivor, but also their family members or anyone who may have come with them to the hospital.

The Central Alberta SART team provides in-hospital support to over 130 individuals each year.

The donations were collected during the month of December 2021. Two Scotiabank locations in Red Deer (Scotiabank – Gaetz Avenue + 45 Street and Scotiabank – Gaetz + 67 Street) chose CASASC as their charity of choice. Throughout the month the two teams collected donations, both cash and items, from staff and customers.

Thank you so much for your support.
