This opportunity will allow all monetary donations to Comrie's Sports Equipment Bank to be matched up to 50%!  100% of donations to Comrie's received through the Birdies for Kids program will go directly to helping kids get into gear!

We are more than blessed to have Todd, Ervina, Darryl, Al, Kaleigh and a ton of other fine folks from Stantec helping us get off to a running start by not only designing our mezzanine level for our shop, but also helping us with equipment drives and many other massive volunteer efforts. We hope that you know how much our success is dependant on community minded companies like yours lending a hand.  Hold on to your hard hats Stantec cause you have a truck load of good Karma coming your way!

Comrie's Sports Equipment Bank was proud to be a part of the try goalie event at the Hockey Calgary headquarters in Max Bell Arena. Coaches were brought in from elite hockey teams and the Hockey Alberta organization to provide instruction for dozens of young future goalies. Comrie's was happy to provide goalie equipment to get more "kids into gear".

We had a great group of volunteers representing the Comrie's team at our equipment drive at the Roughnecks game on February 4th 2017! We filled up two bins with equipment and had almost 100 people signup up for our Newsletter, Facebook, and Twitter! Congratulations to Tim Anderson on winning the autographed Roughnecks jersey!
