CCS Corporation Celebrates Season in Slave Lake with Christmas Charity Hockey Challenge

SLAVE LAKE, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2011) - CCS Corporation - a leader in environmental and energy service solutions - continues its support for the Slave Lake community with a day of hockey celebration with the sport's youngest and oldest fans in the community.

"We're thrilled to be back in Slave Lake, celebrating the spirit of the season with the residents," says John Gibson, president and CEO, CCS Corporation. "Hockey is truly a sport that unites communities, and over the past few months, we've seen first-hand this community join together through teamwork and hometown pride to support one another. This is one of the many reasons our team at CCS worked to support the rebuild of the hockey arena."

Earlier this year, CCS employees across Canada banded together to raise $100,000, which was given to the Town of Slave Lake to help fund the completion of the hockey arena.

All day, the CCS team will tour town with Hockey Hall of Fame Chairman and CEO Bill Hay, Slave Lake Mayor Karina Pillay-Kinnee, visiting local elementary school students and seniors. This community celebration will culminate with the first Christmas Charity Hockey Challenge in the newly-titled CCS Arena between the Lesser Slave Lake Regional Fire Service and the Slave Lake RCMP. Funds raised will support local food bank, Salvation Army Red Kettle, and Santa's Anonymous to help residents who were impacted by the destruction caused by the forest fires that swept in last May.

"Hockey depicts Alberta and Canada's commitment to teamwork, perseverance, fair play and success and we're very happy to have the good people of Slave Lake sharing in these events," said Bill Hay, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Hockey Hall of Fame.

Residents are invited to the CCS Arena and everyone is encouraged to bring their camera to take photos of the new arena and charity challenge.
