Thank you very much to everyone who helped out for our big Canada Day event! The money we raised that day is being put towards our Birdies for Kids account. This is allowing the $1300 we raised to be matched at 50%, meaning your help assisted us in raising the equivalent of $1,950.00!!
To put that in perspective, if we were to spend that money on helmets we would be able to purchase 55 helmets! We appreciate your time and effort. Thank you!!
Join us for a day at the fair!
We are looking for volunteers for the 110th Priddis & Millarville Fair on August 19th! By volunteering with Comrie's you can help us earn money to "get kids into gear". Comrie's volunteers will be helping coordinate the parking for the event (no experience necessary). Volunteers are needed from 8:30am-5:30pm. Full day and part day shifts are available. Carpooling will be available for your convenience. In and around your duties be sure to indulge in some of the flavors of the fair, and we're not just talking about the fantastic food! If you are interested in volunteering for this event and would like more information please contact Adriel Allen, Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Not only did Professional Skate do an equipment drive for us the last couple of months, they also donated a few thousand dollars of brand new equipment! Thanks so much for your contribution in the sporting community!
We were happy to once again join Hockey Alberta for the Rinks to Links program held in Canmore, AB this year! We helped outfit 29 kids in full hockey equipment and even got to join the kids on the ice!
If you're interested in donating new or gently-used sports equipment please visit our website at http://www.comriessportsequipmentbank.org/equipment for a list of drop off locations. The generosity of donors fills our bins fast so if you would like to drop off donations directly at our shop at 3557 52nd Street SE Calgary, AB, during our hours of operation, that would be a big help!
