Thank you to all our skating families, coaches and volunteers!
Our first ever Christmas toy drive, Toy Angels has been a success and we were able to donate 99 toys to the Salvation Army and Calgary’s radio station Kiss 95.9FM efforts to help Calgarian families receive toys this Christmas.
We were able to hold two ‘buy-to-donate’ shopping days where families could buy a toy from our volunteers and immediately add it to the toy mountain. These were fun and successful for all who were involved, not to mention a convenient way to donate to the toy drive.
Our skaters were also involved in a fun mini Christmas ‘creative’ free skate session during Sunday stroking to encourage participation in the Toy Angels program this year!
It was a fun and memorable experience, one which we hope to repeat next year!
The toys were delivered safely to a Toy Angels location and will go to families and children in need this holiday season.
Thank you again for everyone’s generosity and for playing a part in contributing to our Calgary community!
