  • SARIMS Gives Back to Our Communities

    SARIMS is proud to give back to the communities our members operate in. One of the charities SARIMS donated to in 2016 was the Multi-Agency School Support Team (MASST), a program run through the Calgary Police Service providing risk identification and intervention for children age 5-12 in Calgary. The donation given by SARIMS goes towards purchasing helmets, bicycles and providing road safety training for children in Calgary who might not otherwise have access to these items. A second charity that is supported by SARIMS members is the South West Alberta Road Safety Society (SARSS) which also provides bicycles, helmets and road safety training for children in the Lethbridge and Southern Alberta region. In 2016 SARIMS also made charitable donations to the William H. McGannon Foundation ($10,000) and to the Canadian Red Cross for Alberta Fire Relief ($2,500) following the devastating fires in Fort McMurray.
