As someone who has worked in the social services industry for a decade, I have come to appreciate companies who choose to help their community. Hull Services, where I worked assisting children and families, would not have been able to operate without the assistance of many sponsors and volunteers in the Calgary community. Although my career path has taken a turn in recent years, I am still eager to keep community spirit alive. At Kasa Consulting, Cam and I have committed to helping our community in a variety of ways, and look forward do doing more as our company grows and evolves.
One of the ways in which we support our community is through sponsoring sports teams. One of our employees, Alex Entz, plays on a Fernie softball team called Faces Loaded, and with our assistance, they were able to obtain new team jerseys. We also sponsor a basketball team in the Central Alberta Senior Men’s Basketball Association, as a way of showing one of our valued clients – Colter Energy Services – that we support them in more than their health and safety initiatives.
Another way we show our commitment to community is through donating necessary goods for the less fortunate in Calgary and Edmonton. One of our clients, DistributionNOW, spends a considerable amount of time every year collecting donations on behalf of Inn from the Cold. Inn from the Cold is an organization that collects warm clothing, accessories, diapers, and toiletries for those in need, and thanks to DistributionNOW, we have been made aware of this great organization that we have supported for the past few years.
Finally, I am a member of Calgary Women in Energy (CWIE). As part of this group, I have assisted in many of their planned, charitable events. Over the years of my involvement with the CWIE, I have served lunch and dinner at the Calgary Drop-in Centre, participated in a blood drive with Canadian Blood Services, volunteered at a charity golf tournament for the Louise Dean School, a school which allows young mothers, both current and expectant, to complete their education, and taken part in a Stuff-A-Purse drive for women in need.
Volunteering is something the Kasa team does throughout the year. If you would like to participate in any of the initiatives we are currently involved in, or will be involved in, or if you would like to include Kasa in any of your community spirit initiatives, please feel free to call or email me anytime.
