Kids Sport Donation


In order for young athletes to kick a football, shoot a basketball, or handle a hockey stick, parents often have to face their won hurdle-  paying sports registration fees. The Pincher Creek Co-op made a cash donation to help local families overcome this obstacle. The Pincher Creek Co-op made a cash donation in the amount of $5000.00 to the community’s Kidsport group. The Pincher Creek Co-op is now the largest corporate sponsor Kidsport has ever received. This donation will be able to support 30 young athletes and enable them to participate in sports for the 2016 year.


The Pincher Creek Co-op as a team 2 years ago decided to use Fridays for a casual jeans day. $2.00 each Friday was subtracted from the staffs payroll and placed into a Kidsport account. Over two years, this had added up to $4000.00, with Pincher Creek pitching in another $1000.00 from the advertising budget. As far as Co-ops models and principles go, community engagement is number one for us” Jason says. We are proud as a team to be able to support such a great cause!
