Supporting Women and Feeding Families
The Peanut Butter Classic is proud to have been supporting women in need since 2004. More than 98% of funds raised go directly to our recipient charity, Alcove . Since inception, we have been collecting peanut butter for the Calgary Food Bank. In 2018, we were proud to add the Firefighters Assistance Charitable Society as a new recipient.
Alcove’s mission is to operate residential recovery facilities for women who experience the co-occurring issues of addiction, mental health distress and a history of abuse. In a unique home-like setting, Alcove promotes recovery by providing its clients with holistic counselling and programming services that strive to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, occupational, and social needs of each client. For women who are pregnant or are already mothers and who might otherwise avoid recovery for fear of being separated from their children, Alcove additionally offers accommodations and programs that keep families intact and that allow mothers and their children to remain together during recovery.
Please consider supporting Alcove through the year. Visit their website to find out more.
Established in 1982, the Calgary Food Bank is a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to gathering and distributing quality emergency food to those in need.
The majority of people assisted are working-poor Calgarians struggling to make ends meet. The Calgary Food Bank is not a government or United Way agency.
We are pleased to provide peanut butter from the tournament to help hungry Calgarians
The Firefighters Assistance Charitable Society was created to provide help to Firefighters and their families by ensuring they have easy access to meaningful assistance and resources during their time of need. It is our objective to provide Firefighters with that same compassion, generosity and selflessness that Firefighters demonstrate everyday by helping the public and risking their lives and well-being in the line of duty.
Peanut Butter Classic was pleased to donate $1000 to this very worthy cause.
