Husky Supports Calgary Police Youth Initiative
Calgary, Alberta - Husky Energy has made a $500,000 pledge towards the Calgary Police Foundation to support the Calgary Police Service’s Multi Agency School Support Team (MASST).
The MASST program is an early intervention initiative supporting children and youth between the ages of five and 12 who exhibit behavior which puts them at risk for criminal involvement, or who are at an increased risk for victimization.
“This program provides essential support for at-risk children and their families during a critical time in their lives. Providing these kids with more options will result in them making better choices,” said Husky CEO Asim Ghosh. “At Husky, we are delighted to be able to support the Calgary Police Service in this important work.”
MASST is a community collaboration between the Calgary Police Service, the Calgary Catholic School District, the City of Calgary (Community & Neighbourhood Services), the Calgary Board of Education, the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services.
“The Calgary Police Service is proud to partner in a program that aims to prevent crime before it happens by intervening early with kids at risk and their families,” said Calgary Police Chief Rick Hanson.
“It is an amazing gift to the citizens of Calgary that the leaders of corporate Calgary, such as Husky, are so willing to recognize and support vital initiatives, to provide hope and help, for those Calgarians who are most in need.”
