The Glencoe Club is committed to providing support and giving back to all the communities we are a part of. We sponsor a variety of initiatives through out the year with a focus on our Charity of Choice and our internally established Project Angel campaign. Another service to the community, we also produce and print the Elbow Park Gazette.
In 1992 a group of Glencoe employees and members started Project Angel as a way to give back to the community. 20 years later it is now an integral part of our club culture. Since its inception, this annual institution of giving has helped hundreds of individuals in need.
Charity of Choice
Over the years, the Club has focused its charitable donations to groups such as Inn from the Cold, YWCA, Women in Need, Servants Anonymous and the Veterans Food Bank. For the past 10 years we have had a wonderful partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary. This year, in alignment with the Club's Mission, Vision & Values, your Board of Directors approved a change to the Club's charity of choice. The Glencoe Club is pleased to announce that KidSport Calgary & Area will be the recipient of Project Angel donations.
KidSport Calgary & Area is a local non-profit organization that helps to remove barriers for children looking to participate in organized sport. KidSport Calgary & Area believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and that all should be given the opportunity to experience the benefits of organized sport. Partnering with KidSport Calgary & Area will provide the Club with opportunities to live out its mission of Creating Exceptional Experiences by helping to create positive memories for children in their athletic, recreational and social pursuits.
