CCA Annual Christmas Open House Recap

The CCA welcomed over 200 guests to the Calgary Construction Centre to meet and greet our members and industry partners at the Annual Christmas Open House on December, 3.

In CCA tradition, donations for the Calgary Food Bank were welcomed and members donated a total of two large boxes of food, and $295 in monetary donations! The Calgary Food Bank is able to turn every dollar donated in to $5 of food.

The Christmas season is often the busiest time for the Food Bank and, thanks to your generous donations, more people will be able to have a happy holiday season.
