MONTREAL, Dec. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of its involvement with the Media's Big Food Drive, Laurentian Bank is striving to sensitize young people to the importance of giving to others, particularly during the holiday season. As such, the Bank is encouraging youngsters to visit www.littleheroesclub.ca - an amusing and educational Web site designed for children - and to indicate a good deed they will have done to help the disadvantaged. Youngsters will also be invited to enter the online contest for a chance to win a family pass to the Canadiens game this coming February 6. Four tickets will be drawn from among all the entries received.
Laurentian Bank's Little Heroes Club is an original concept created in line with the organization's dedication to supporting and maintaining close ties with one of its most important client groups - families. In fact, the Bank allocates a significant portion of its investments in the area of sponsorships, donations and special initiatives to supporting organizations and events that benefit children and families. The Little Heroes Club is a concrete manifestation of the Bank's devotion to this public. In addition to its Internet site, the Club is actively present at a variety of different events each year with which the Bank is associated.
