SGI helping kids bundle up with the Coats 4 Kids program
Dec. 17, 2014
SGI is working to keep Saskatchewan children warm this holiday season with a $10,000 donation to the Huddle Up Foundation’s Coats 4 Kids program.
The donation will be used to buy new coats for kids between the ages of 4 and 18, and to support a number of youth organizations in need. SGI has also asked employees across the province to collect new and gently used coats and other winter wear which will also be donated.
“We know all too well, Saskatchewan winters can be harsh. Thousands of children last year were better prepared for the winter because of the Coats 4 Kids program,” said Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO of SGI. “SGI is proud to help keep kids warm this winter.”
The Huddle Up Foundation is a team of professional athletes from across North America who have committed to improving the lives of kids by creating their own charitable causes. The Coats 4 Kids program was created by Roughrider alumni Geroy Simon.
“This is a program close to my heart, so it’s special for me when Saskatchewan companies like SGI reach out with their generosity,” said Geroy Simon of the Huddle Up Foundation’s Coats 4 Kids program. “Nobody should go without a coat in winter, and it’s help like this that ensures more don’t have to.”
SGI cares about the communities and people it does business with. That’s why each holiday season, SGI contributes to a charitable organization on behalf of its employees.
In 2013, SGI donated $10,000 to Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan.
