CALGARY, April 6, 2015 /CNW/ - In partnership with Calgary Flames forward, Joe Colborne, and the Colborne's Forces initiative, Packers Plus Energy Services Inc. presented a $25,000 donation to the Calgary Military Family Resource Centre (CMFRC).
Dan Themig, Packers Plus President & CEO, along with Joe Colborne, presented the donation to the CMFRC on Monday, April 6. Mr. Themig said, "Packers Plus is proud to have partnered with Joe Colborne and the Calgary Flames for Colborne's Forces. We're honoured to support our men and women in uniform and their families."
For every point recorded by Colborne throughout the 2014/2015 hockey season, Packers Plus added to the donation amount. Colborne also donated Calgary Flames home game tickets to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) for the entire hockey season. At select home games, CAF members and their families were recognized with a salute from fans and from Packers Plus. They were also able to meet Joe after the game.
