Seniors Secret Service

Our Calgary office played Santa this year for Seniors Secret Service – a registered charity that provides Christmas gifts for seniors throughout the City of Calgary. With the help of Santa and many volunteers, Seniors Secret Service was able to provide over 3400 seniors in Calgary and surrounding areas with Christmas gifts last year. Their objective is to make sure no senior is forgotten at this special time of year!

Staff from our Calgary office were pleased to be able to contribute, and bring cheer to isolated seniors.

Alberta's Promise - Promise Partner

Peace Hills Insurance is a proud Alberta’s Promise partner committed to enhancing community resources for children and families in Alberta. 

Alberta’s children and youth shape the future of our communities and our province — and we want to play an active role in supporting their well-being from childhood to adulthood. Over the years, our organization has been actively engaged in supporting the youth of Maskwacis, as an entity of Samson Cree Nation. With the support of Peace Hills, Samson Band members have been able to access various educational, athletic and cultural opportunities in the Community and abroad.

Creating and supporting positive outcomes for children and youth in Alberta has always been the cornerstone of Alberta's Promise. The organization inspires action and investment between business, agency and community partners to build a brighter future for kids. Through our partnership with Alberta’s Promise, we affirm our continued commitment to enhancing community resources for children and their families in Maskwacis, and we pledge to support the Five Promises of Alberta’s Promise.

Camp He Ho Ha - Tree of Hope Program

Peace Hills Insurance is proud to partner with Camp He Ho Ha and their Tree of Hope Program. Our donation of $10,000.00 to this worthy cause will allow 14 campers to be sponsored to attend a camp session this summer.

Camp Health, Hope & Happiness Society exists to provide safe and rewarding recreational opportunities to children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. A not-for-profit, non-denominational organization situated on Lake Isle in Northern Alberta funded by public support.

 

 

 

Every year Camp Health, Hope & Happiness relies heavily on private and corporate donations to sponsor and/or subsidize campers to attend camp. The camper fee includes the following: meals & snacks, accommodations, programs, program equipment, total personal care, supervision and medical staff to administer medications and to provide the required medical attention for the campers. Camp Health, Hope & Happiness subsidizes each camper 55% of the actual cost to provide these mandated services to people with disabilities. As a result the summer camp program annually operates at a substantial deficit and requires numerous donations to maintain the mandated programs for people with disabilities.

The Food Bank also distributes food to more than 410,000 meals and snacks per month through more than 210 agencies, churches or food depots with which they are affiliated.

Ronald McDonald House Re-Gift Card Program

December 14, 2015 - Last month, Peace Hills Insurance hosted the Re-Gift Card Program in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Northern Alberta (RMHCNA). We are pleased to report that our staff raised $475 through gift card donations, to help support the House and the families who staythere.

The Re-Gift Card Program is a third-party fundraising initiative endorsed by RMHCNA and coordinated by volunteers. Gift cards have become an increasingly popular way of gift giving. Most of us walk around with unused gift cards that will either never be used, or might even be thrown away – especially those with partial balances.

The Re-Gift Card Program offers a use for these cards, even those with very small remaining balances. We collect, determine the value of and sort these cards by business. Once a usable value is reached, the cards are redeemed for items and/or services related to the day-to-day operation of RMHCNA or for the comfort of the families staying there.
