We have also donated to benefits for families who are in stress e.g., fire, health, death.

Except for donations to Command - which are in our mandate - and the ones to the Children’s Hospital, STARS, and the Salvation Army, we keep our donations local as much as possible as we feel it is the local community that supports us.
