Altruism Is in the Air at Calgary Academy  

December 15, 2022 2 min read

At Calgary Academy, the REACH principles guide our beliefs and actions. One of these principles is altruism, the selfless concern for others. This December, CA wants to encourage altruism in the greater Calgary community, spotlighting local organizations making a difference. 

Learn more about these organizations and how you can help support their missions this holiday season! 

Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids

Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids (BB4CK) is a local non-profit providing students with homemade lunches. Children deserve food, and they shouldn’t have to worry about when and where it comes from—BB4CK has followed this belief since serving its first lunches.

If you’re looking to help, you can volunteer time to a meaningful cause. 

Calgary Food Bank 

Since 1982, the Calgary Food Bank has helped the local community by providing food to those who need it. No one should have to go hungry—especially during the holiday season. You can support the Calgary Food Bank’s mission in several ways. 

Make an impact by donating your time this December.   

The Immigrant Education Society 

The Immigrant Education Society (TIES) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing Canadians with quality training and education. Founded in 1988, TIES supports immigrants and low-income Canadians with language and employment training, assisting over 1,400 students daily.

Closer to Home 

Closer to Home Community Services (CTH) is a local charity, providing essential support to Canadians since 1995. With a goal that every child thrives within their family and community relationships, CTH offers parent and family, child and youth, and Indigenous support programs.
