Compassion House – this is a safe house in Edmonton where women can stay when they are going for treatments after having breast cancer surgery. We have supported the house since 2001 when Arleen Albiez was PP and they were raising funds to build the house. cheques. The house was chosen as our “charity of choice”. The funds will be used for cancer related resource materials, educational/support programming for cancer patients and maintenance of the house. We continue to donate the Compassion House annually. The “Alberta Royal Purple Volunteer Room” is marked and named for our continued support. Our provincial charter hangs there---as this charter has been replaced by the new CRPS charter certificate. We have purchased office equipment for the room and donated a set of knives to the kitchen area to be used by all living there.

Ronald McDonald House – Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Medicine Hat. The houses have used our donations for several projects. We paid for all the ingredients for cookies to be made by volunteers for the kids and families residing at the houses. We provided money to make bag lunches for the residents to take to the hospital instead of purchasing food every day. Every year we try to collect new teddy bears and small blankets to donate to the kids that stay at the houses.
