On Friday, Westlake Financial highlighted one of its latest philanthropy endeavors.

The finance company said it partnered with Ronald McDonald’s 2022 Walk for Kids and donated $72,000, one of the largest donations in southern California thus far. Westlake indicated the Walk for Kids is motivated to create a community of hope and healing for critically ill children and their loved ones.

“Westlake understands the importance of strength in a community and the need for support among families of critically ill individuals,” Westlake Technology Holdings group president Ian Anderson said in a news release.

“I am proud to work alongside caring employees who, during difficult times, still want to contribute and give back to those around them,” Anderson continued.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California started Walk for Kids to support families of children facing significant health issues. This walk has brought healing and joy to families in need since 2010 and hopes to reach more families in the years to come.

“Our health is one of our most precious assets, a healthy body is like a full house of love,” Westlake Financial vice president of human resources Tonia Douglas said. “Our goal is to support our community by contributing to their health and wellbeing now and in the years to come.”
