KidSport is pleased to welcome Westminster Savings and Credit Union back to the family. Westminster Savings truly believes in the power of active living and the arts and in the importance of community and annually donates over $500,000 to these causes. The KidSport community chapters that are so happy to partner once again with WSCU are: New Westminster, Tricities, Surrey/White Rock; Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows; Burnaby and Langley.
Westminster Savings believes in “Better Balance”, and it’s a philosophy that is important to KidSport as well. Ensuring that our communities are inclusive and encourage broad participation in a variety of endeavours is what we believe and it is with great pride that we work with Westminster Savings to ensure that we help to achieve “Better Balance”.
As a result of the generous support of WSCU, hundreds of local children; whose families face financial challenges; will get the chance to experience the joys of a season of sport. The obvious physical and health benefits from sport participation are obviously important, but sport also is essential in the development of socialization skills, teamwork, self confidence, improved academic performance among other life skills.
This three year partnership will also see KidSport chapters and Westminster Savings working together in the community at events like the KidSport Tricities Used Equipment Sale, the Ritchie Bros Corporate Kids Challenge and the KidSport Surrey/White Rock Nite of Champions to enhance community awareness around the great work of our two organizations.
