$113,900 to Kids in Alberta Hospitals!
Alberta’s kids gained from five decades of the gas co-op movement!
As part of our 50th anniversary celebration in 2014, our utilities gave back through a special fund-raiser for both the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, and the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary. Dubbed FedGas 50th For Kids, it also marked the first time that both Children’s Hospital Foundations partnered on the same fund-raiser!
It was a great fit because in all our communities, kids are the centre. Kids are what brings a community to life, and when a community loses that spirit you feel the difference. We wanted to keep that spirit and make sure that our kids have the help they need when they need it.
Our utilities, partners, and individuals responded in droves. By the end of our 50th anniversary year, we were able to present over $114,000 to the two Children’s Hospital Foundations! Each Foundation received half the total.
With thanks to everyone that participated, sick kids in this province will continue to have the excellent care when they need it most, and give them the fighting chance they need to return to their communities!
