• Change Starts Here: United Way Workplace Campaign

    What a successful campaign! Each year our Calgary offices run a week-long fundraising event for the United Way of Calgary and Area.

    With a dedicated team of employees from both the PRD and Drilling Services divisions, the week was full of exciting activities to bring in donations, as well as give back in other ways aside from monetary means.

    Not only did we raise $235,207.00 for an organization dedicated to bettering our communities, we also contributed bodies and volunteer hours to make a physical, positive impact for local organizations. Eight individuals at Foundation Place now have a brand new patio they can enjoy all summer long; The Clothing Room at the Drop-In Centre had helpful hands folding and sorting clothing donations for those who need them; Clients of the Drop-In Centre received a hot hamburger lunch and were greeted by the smiling faces of SES and MA employees, which by the numerous “thank-you’s” and loud applause the group received as we finished our shift is evidence enough that our presence was received with the utmost gratitude.

    Change really does start here.

  • Getting Our Hands Dirty While Keeping Our Parks Clean

    Employees of SECURE Energy Services took part in the Pathway and River Cleanup Event in partnership with the City of Calgary on Sunday, May 6th, 2012.

    The initiative got started in 1967 by 12-year-old Sandra Crawford. While walking along the Elbow River that spring she noticed a mattress lying along the river’s edge. She tried to pull it out on her own, but wasn’t successful. Upset about the negligence and disrespect given to the area, she wrote a letter to the Calgary Herald, which ultimately prompted a Call to Action.

    Over the last 45 years, thousands of volunteers in the city of Calgary have dedicated their time and efforts to cleaning up our rivers and pathways during this annual event.

    Everyone at SECURE was excited to be involved in this community event for the first time ever and take part in green incentives supporting the parks and rivers that make Calgary home.
