The Gear Centre Group Supporting our Military Families

This year The Gear Centre Group of Companies is showing their support of the Canadian Armed Forces by donating Christmas gifts to the children of our military families at the Edmonton Garrison Military Family Resource Centre on December 13, 2017.

For over 25 years the Edmonton Garrison Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) has been committed to enriching the lives of individuals and families in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) through positive action, education and support.

Absences from family support systems, difficulties  during deployments, solo parenting  or coping with an injury or loss are realities for military families: realities which can have a significant impact on family well-being.

Established in 1989, the MFRC has been committed to supporting military families as they navigate these unique challenges through programs and services that enhance the strength and resilience of military families.
