Read some of the kind words that community members and organizations are saying about SaskEnergy.
SaskEnergy has generously provided funding to AVR-SK in order to acknowledge excellence in volunteer administration in Saskatchewan. The SaskEnergy Volunteer Champion Award has been developed with the funding and is awarded to one member of AVR-SK each year for their outstanding contribution to their community. SaskEnergy also sends a member of their team to present the award and give a motivational speech at our Annual General Meeting. We are thrilled with our partnership and it has made a huge difference to our non profit organization.
SaskEnergy was very prompt in responding to our request to fund our 2016 Children's Festival. They generously donated 500 dollars to our event, which allowed us to bring in a reptile expert to educate our rural community. They also provided a banner which we displayed at our festival. We greatly appreciated their interest in our cause!
SaskEnergy has supported The Princess Shop through their Community BBQ Grant Program. It is so great to have a SaskEnergy employee come set up the BBQ truck, flip burgers and enjoy a great BBQ alongside volunteers, supporters, Princess Graduates, and their families. This allows us to keep the even free for our program recipients and their families!
We were grateful to SaskEnergy for contributing to our annual Ice Fishing Derby by donating a gas BBQ for several years. It was used as a special raffle item and raised several hundred dollars each year. Special thanks to Trish Watier for being our liaison....a home town gal that we love.
The Swift Current SPCA is so grateful for the ongoing support of Sask Energy. In 2014 they purchased trees and shrubs for the SPCA shelter site and sent a great staff crew to plant 26 in total, greatly improving our property. In 2015 local staff did a "4 Legged Food Drive" with an amazing donation of food and practical items to help our pets. And in 2015 and 2016 Sask Energy also supported our fall fundraising dinner through item donations. Since we are a community-funded shelter, wonderful corporate supporters like Sask Energy are critical to our ability to continue to serve stray and homeless pets in southwest Saskatchewan. Thank you Sask Energy!
SaskEnergy has been a long-time & generous supporter of the Saskatchewan Games Council and the Saskatchewan Games program. As our "Champion of Volunteers" SaskEnergy has shown their commitment to help make a difference in our host communities. In addition to the cash, value in kind, and office space support, SaskEnergy employees have generously donated their time and talent to help our cause. From the thousands of young athletes and volunteers that benefit from your support...THANK YOU SaskEnergy!
SaskEnergy has a program that matches the donations staff members raise up to a certain level. This has given incentive to their employees to get behind causes such as cystic fibrosis. Also, they have helped cover a portion of expenses for the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History with their Summer Sizzle BBQ Program. With this assistance, we are able to direct more funds to research to find a cure or control for cystic fibrosis.
