June 10th, 2011 St. John Ambulance Mr. Sander Sarioglu 2905 – 12th Street NE Calgary, Alberta
Dear Mr. Sarioglu,
It is in the same spirit that Colliers International gives back to community that we are recognizing St. John Ambulance for the work it provides to communities all across Alberta. Supporting organizations such as the United Way, The Mustard Seed, Prostate Cancer Canada, Safe haven Foundation, Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund and the Calgary Inter-faith Food Bank we recognize the importance of a new facility for St. John Ambulance in Calgary.
Contributing over $5 million to Calgary’s economic environment each year St. John Ambulance is an important part of community support and training in essential life saving skills in the region. With this in mind Colliers International is not only helping St. John Ambulance find land for a new facility in Calgary but is committed to donating a portion of the resulting commission back to the Calgary Capital Campaign in order to help facilitate the build.
Colliers International was established in 1898 in Vancouver and has since grown to become Canada’s largest commercial real estate service company. Colliers International’s core culture revolves around service excellence, shared sense of initiative and social responsibility. Similarly, St. John Ambulance established in Alberta in 1897, is a consistent source of community service and essential first aid training in the communities it serves to a point where provincially they provide over 60,000 hours of volunteer service and issue over 130,000 certificates each year. With two long histories of success and giving back to the community we are pleased to be able to not only work with St. John Ambulance to meet their goal of obtaining a new facility in Calgary, but contributing to it as well.
Sincerely, Jessica Couillard Colliers International
