Major Community Sponsorships
Inn from the Cold
Inn from the Cold is an organization borne from a concern for the significant number of families that face homelessness in Calgary. The Inn's mission is to provide emergency shelter, support, and programs to homeless children, their families and others in need, with the goal of building healthy, stable families and ending homelessness. The Inn operates year round and coordinates a large number of churches, synagogues, mosques and community associations that come together to provide temporary emergency shelter.
Inter Pipeline is a proud supporter of the Inn. Our employees volunteer regularly at the Inn, helping to serve evening meals. Corporately Inter Pipeline supports various initiatives at the Inn, including the funding of a significant portion of a new kitchen.
Woods Homes started as an orphanage in 1914 when a soldier, about to head overseas, stopped George Wood, a Presbyterian minister, on a street in Innisfail, Alberta to ask if he would care for his two motherless children. The soldier never returned. Thus began a foundation that has grown to serve 20,000 children and their families every year. Woods Homes operates as a place of trust where young people and their families can turn to for help. Woods Homes' mission is captured in their motto: We Never Say No; We Never Give Up; We Never Turn Anyone Away.
Inter Pipeline supports the initiatives of Woods Homes with their particular emphasis on troubled youth. At the Children's Village school, children with severe emotional and behavioural difficulties are counselled and supported. Many children arrived at school without proper nourishment. Inter Pipeline has financed a kitchen facility at the Children's Village school to provide hot meals and useful nutritional education that otherwise might not be available.
Art Smith Aviation Academy
The Art Smith Aviation Academy (ASAA), located within the 4 Wing Cold Lake air force base, is a not-for-profit private school focusing on the specialized needs of military dependants and supporting students of the area surrounding 4 Wing Cold Lake. The school provides a unique educational perspective with exposure to aviation related experiences, as well as providing support for parents through such programs as before and after school child care.
Inter Pipeline is pleased to partner with the ASAA to help fund the school. Under a multi-year program, Inter Pipeline provided financial support to help refurbish and operate the school. The Cold Lake region is important to our operations and we are proud to be a strong supporter of Cold Lake and the military community.
Canadian Paralympian, Josh Cassidy was born in Ottawa in 1984. He was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, cancer in the spine and abdomen, weeks after birth. He was given a very low chance of survival through the illness and treatments those first years of his life. Nearly twenty-four years later, Josh competed in Beijing, China, at the Paralympic Games and four years later in London for the 2012 Games. Josh is ranked top in his country among all of his whelchair racing events - the 800m, 1500m, 5000m and is the current record holder for the Boston Marathon (attained in 2012).
Josh is a prime example of the driving spirit in us all, and is an inspiration by his success in achieving the many goals he sets. Inter Pipeline is proud to sponsor an icon of Canadian athletics.
