The Calgary Flames Foundation has stepped up with a very significant contribution to KidSport chapters in Southern Alberta as part of their COVID-19 Community Support Program. The Foundation donated $100,000 to KidSport on August 19th, 2020, as part of a $1 million dollars being contributed to various charities in Southern Alberta, focusing on Grassroots Sport, Food Mobilization, Vulnerable Populations, and Family Support Services. KidSport is honored to be part of this list of amazing organizations who are doing essential work in keeping our communities strong, and we cannot thank the Flames Foundation enough for their investment in the futures of kids in our communities.
This contribution is a huge boost to our KidSport Back to Sport Project as we work to raise $1.5 million to help kids off the sidelines and into a season of sport. Sport skills are life skills, and kids need sport now more than ever as they navigate their current circumstances. With sport, kids are happier, healthier, and better equipped to handle life’s challenges. KidSport chapters in Southern Alberta will use the Flames Foundation’s donation to support sport registration fees for qualified (low income) families so their kids can play. The $100,000 donation will help over 400 kids access sport programs and get back to sport.
Thank you to the Calgary Flames Foundation and to everyone who purchased an online 50/50 ticket during the 2020 NHL Playoffs. Each Calgary Flames fan who bought a ticket has helped make this donation possible, and has invested in a brighter future for kids in Southern Alberta. We are grateful to be supported by such an incredible community.
