Chestermere Fire Services Staff donate $10,000 to Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation

CFS Donation

Yesterday afternoon, members of Chestermere Fire Services (CFS) visited the Alberta Children’s Hospital to present them with a cheque for $10,830.

“For first responders, pediatric calls are some of the toughest,” said Chestermere Fire Chief Brian Pomrenke. “In serious situations, we know that the best chance kids have is getting them to the Children’s Hospital, so we are very proud to contribute to this incredible place.”

The donation is a collection of personal paycheck deductions from the Fire Services team over the past two years. They chose the Children’s Hospital because so many of the staff had personal connections to the facility.

“We are so grateful to our community and donors like the Chestermere Fire Services team, for rallying behind the Alberta Children’s Hospital and helping to provide the very best care to our kids and families,” said Meghan Kociuba, Manager, Community Initiatives and Events at Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation.

While they presented the official cheque yesterday, CFS officially donated the funds on the first day of the annual Country 105 Caring for Kids Radiothon last week. That timing meant that the donation was matched by anonymous donors twice, bringing the total contribution to over $30,000.

“We are so proud to have supported the Alberta Children’s Hospital and contribute to the amazing work they are doing there. We hope that the community continues to support this incredible place in the years to come,” says Chief Pomrenke.
