Community Support

AAP branches across Canada provide community support through volunteer opportunities and/or monetary donations to assist local groups/charities. In March 2023, we volunteered at Edmonton’s Food Bank. We bagged potatoes and helped to build food hampers, and we contributed 6 cumulative hours of time. We also donated the registration fees ($60) for the event to the Food Bank.

Support has previously been provided to WIN House and Suit Yourself.
