TruGreen Metal Recycling joins team KidSport to support getting kids into sports across western Canada


SASKATCHEWAN – KidSport Saskatchewan and KidSport Alberta were the recipients of a $25,000 donation from TruGreen Metal Recycling. $12,500 was donated to each province.

Thanks to TruGreen Metal’s donation, 100 kids in Alberta and Saskatchewan will benefit from grant funding to cover registration fees for participation in their sport.

“We’re excited to have this partnership to help even more kids across our province,” said Jerry Shoemaker, Provincial KidSport Committee Chair. “By giving kids an opportunity to participate in sports we know they are given the chance to learn skills, gain confidence and learn valuable skills they will use forever while making some great friends along the way.”

“We’re grateful to have the opportunity to partner to help kids all over the province,” said Greg Ingalls, KidSport Alberta Executive Director. “By giving kids the chance to experience the power of sport during critical years of adolescent development, we are providing them with the opportunities to learn skills and lessons that can help them throughout their lives.”


KidSport is a national not-for-profit organization that helps remove financial barriers that prevent kids from playing sport by providing assistance for registration fees and sport equipment to children aged 18 and under.

Through a confidential application process grants are administered through KidSport’s 166 community chapters so they can play a season of organized sport.
