Equipment and cash donations being made to KidSport Calgary
This weekend two Calgary London Drugs locations will be clearing out a selection of composite brand name Jr sticks, and high performance Jr and Sr skates at deeply discounted prices.
But bargain hunters won’t be the only winners. The event will also help youngsters play hockey in Calgary and surrounding area this year. For every stick and skate combo package sold on March 28th and 29th, London Drugs will donate $10 to KidSport Calgary to help subsidize registration fees for kids from lower income families.
“No kid should be denied the right to play due to financial limitations,” says Kevin Webster, executive director of KidSport Calgary. “Each donation gives youth in our city the chance to participate.”
Customers are also invited to drop off their gently used hockey equipment for donation to KidSport and Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank. The equipment bank, launched this past summer, helps address a major hurdle that keeps many kids out of sports and that is the cost of equipment.

House Broken by Sonja Yoerg
For veterinarian Geneva Novak, animals can be easier to understand than people. They’re also easier to forgive. But when her mother, Helen, is injured in a vodka-fueled accident, it’s up to Geneva to give her the care she needs.
Since her teens, Geneva has kept her self-destructive mother at arm’s length. Now, with two slippery teenagers of her own at home, the last thing she wants is to add Helen to the mix. but Geneva’s husband convinces her that letting Helen live with them could be her golden chance to repair their relationship.
Geneva isn’t expecting her mother to change anytime soon, but she may finally get answers to the questions she’s been asking for so long. As the truth about her family unfolds, however, Geneva may find secrets too painful to bear and too terrible to forgive.
“A contemporary story of the relationships between 3 generations of family members and their challenges told by the mother, daughter and granddaughter. Interesting storyline with a number of subplots of the different relationships within the family and how they deal with issues that arise. A good read, especially for it being the author’s first novel.” – Review by Janice

Official #PinkShirtDay T-shirts Available at London Drugs in Support of Boys and Girls Clubs Across Western Canada Every seven minutes someone is bullied on a playground in Canada (www.bullying.org). A University of Guelph Bullying Study found that 50 per cent of Canadian school children report being bullied with 45 per cent of surveyed children feeling unsafe when they go to school. Bullying is demoralizing, lowers self-esteem and has led to shootings and suicides in Canada. Bullying happens in many different forms but its purpose is to make someone else feel bad on purpose. Through awareness and education Canadians can continue to take a stand against bullying.
