Think Locally

Community Involvement

The Edmonton Sport & Social Club is a community-minded organization that strives to support local charities, groups and causes. Fundraisers, gift cards, monetary support, and equipment and clothing donations are just a few of the ways the ESSC has committed to giving back not only to sport, but to the rest of the community as well.

Our mission: The ESSC will support the local community and help others. The Club will assist organizations that have similar values and/or a passion for making Edmonton a better City for everyone to call home. As well, the ESSC will lead by example and promote ecological awareness in order to help reduce the impact on the environment.
