Canadian Western Bank invests in local kids



    EDMONTON, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - Throughout the summer months, Canadian Western
Bank's (CWB) The Greater Interest GIC(TM) generated $106,000 in donations for
children's charities across Western Canada.
    The promotion, which ran May thru the end of July, enabled CWB customers
to actively benefit their local area. CWB donated a percentage of amounts
invested in The Greater Interest GIC(TM) back to the community in which the

Society, British Columbia branches donated to Canuck Place Children's Hospice
and remaining branches gave support to local Big Brothers Big Sisters
organizations.
