Thank you to our Board of Directors, headed up by our Chairman Al Coates. This program would never have happened without all of your collective efforts. We would also like to thank our key sponsors including: Hockey Canada Foundation, Hockey Alberta Foundation, Hockey Calgary, KidSport, Sport Calgary, Walsh LLP, Western Hockey League, and the Flames Foundation For Life.  

Ultimate gratitude goes out to Mr Bill Comrie who has been "Getting Kids Into Gear" in Edmonton for over 20 years and was the key player in bringing this to Calgary. Around the shop we call our collective group of children helped "Comrie's Kids" and this is certainly getting to be a big family!
We have Impacted almost 5,000 kids with almost 20,000 Pieces of Equipment since August 2014. We have helped individual kids with their first ever sets, and contributed to the start up of brand new hockey leagues and Camp Programs all over Southern Alberta.
.

Those numbers are something that we are very proud of and we sincerely thank everyone that has ever donated, volunteered or even just told someone about us.  Let's have a great 2017!

Volunteer Thank You
We are very happy to have some of the best volunteers in the known universe here at Comrie's.  We were able to Celebrate these fine folks at the volunteer Appreciation Party just before Christmas and it was a blast! 
Our volunteers help us with such jobs as picking up donations, sorting and processing equipment, outfitting kids and working special events.  Most are well behind the scenes though and should be recognized even if not seen out front with the families.  Thanks should really go out all year around for the great work that they do to help us with "Getting Kids Into Gear"!
