Los Angeles, CA – December 16, 2013 – Westlake Financial Services, a full spectrum auto finance company, is helping 43 families and five nonprofit organizations celebrate the holidays through their fifth annual Adopt-a-Family program. In addition to the company’s large contribution, employees have come together to hold fundraising events such as Photos with Santa, Holiday-grams, 50/50 raffles, and a variety of healthy food fundraisers. The funds will be used to provide holiday toys for children and supplies for basic needs such as blankets and food.

“Westlake Financial employees are the most generous people I know,” said David Goff, Director of Marketing. “They see a need in the community and want to give back. That is why Westlake Financial supports our employees and gives back to families in need every year.
