Western Wealth Capital, a North Vancouver, British Columbia-based investment firm that owns 26 apartment communities across metro Phoenix — and is looking to acquire more — is giving back to its residents.

Western Wealth CEO Janet LePage and Executive Vice President John Rials were in the Valley recently to hand out backpacks and school supply kits to residents of its apartment communities, many located within at-risk neighborhoods and Title IX school districts.

The firm's area apartment communities total 6,041 units.

Since LePage founded Western Wealth in 2014, she has donated nearly $250,000 to her communities, including more than 3,000 backpacks this year alone.
