Christmas at the Edmonton Garrison Military Family Resource Centre

On Wednesday, December 13, The Gear Centre Group of Companies had the pleasure of visiting the Edmonton Garrison Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) to help spread some Christmas cheer to the children of our military families. The wonderful staff at the MFRC welcomed us and introduced us to the children. Santa joined us and had a special gift and treat bag for each of the 94 children. Their excitement and joy won’t soon be forgotten. The Gear Centre Group recognizes the sacrifices that our military families make for our country.
