The Canadian Progress Club – St. Albert supports many worthy charities, from our homegrown Uncles & Aunts at Large to the multinational Special Olympics. We volunteer our time and raise funds to improve the human condition in our communities.

Established in 1967, Uncles & Aunts at Large was among the earliest agencies in the Edmonton area to organize mentor services for children. Through Uncles & Aunts at Large, volunteers offer companionship, mentoring and friendly support to children ages 6 to 18 from single-parent families.

In 1980, the Camp Warwa Society was founded with the generous donation of our land by the Warwa Family and the organization of representatives from the Alberta North Zone Canadian Progress Clubs.  For over 35 years the staff of Camp Warwa have been “Making A Difference” in the lives of children and youth from all over Alberta.  We invite you to be part of this continued tradition and enjoy another memorable Camp Warwa experience.

Providing emergency nutritional support to St. Albert since 1984, the St. Albert Food Bank depends considerably on community support. Monetary and food donations are always welcomed and appreciated. They partner with more than 20 other St. Albert organizations to offer programs. Their registered community liaison social workers coordinate client access to the appropriate community-based social agencies.

KidSport is a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under. Since its creation in 1993, over 750,000 kids across the country have been given the chance to play sport through KidSport grants and sport introduction programming. Through a confidential application process they provide grants so kids can play a season of sport. KidSport is comprised of a network of 11 provincial/territorial KidSport chapters and 166 community KidSport chapters, including St. Albert.

Special Olympics St. Albert is committed to enriching the lives of its citizens – of all ages and abilities with an intellectual disability – through sport. Participants are given the opportunity to realize their full athletic potential with appropriate training, coaching and competitions, resulting in improved life skills, health and self-esteem.
