For the past 15 years, Custom Electric has supported the Veteran's Food Bank Calgary.  During the 2018 holidays, we were able to gather enough donations to almost fill an entire box!

The Veteran’s Food Bank of Calgary is operated by people who truly care about Veterans. Besides providing food hampers to those in need they offer understanding and support to help Veterans to access other services that they may require. Veterans have served their community.
