SERVUS, CALGARY ZOO &
CALGARY COOPERATIVE MEMORIAL SOCIETY @ CFN
Recently Servus Credit Union, the Calgary Zoo, as well as Calgary Cooperative Memorial Society (CCMS) all collaborated with CFN to offer a leg up to low income families here in Calgary.
At the most recent Servus AGM, some of the not for profits they have supported over the past year were invited to set up displays. A representative from the Calgary Zoo was there and a conversation started with some of the other organizations about the red wagons being donated by the Zoo to the Centre for Newcomers. CCMS donated $1000 and Servus then matched this donation. The money was then used to fill several wagons basic household amenities, and the Centre for Newcomers arranged for low income families to receive them here at CFN.
For what is a grand example of community building, synergy and collaboration for the betterment of Calgary as whole, CFN extends its heartfelt thanks to Servus Credit Union, the Calgary Zoo and CCMS for making such a wonderful gesture come to life. When you build a community around multiple ideas and with multiple people you’ve in fact narrowed the focus towards its ultimate goal and the world CFN imagines for Calgary - A community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfil dreams and participate fully as citizens.
