TransCanada Pipelines Limited (TransCanada) donated $10,000 to the Cochrane Rangers Soccer Club through the company's West Path Delivery Project on March 26.
“We are thrilled to be working with and be a part of the community,” said Catie O’Neal, a communications representative for TransCanada.
The West Path Delivery Project mission is to provide southwest Alberta with natural gas and connect the province to other markets while engaging with local communities.
Throughout the project, $115,000 has been invested in local communities.
The donation has been invested into the installation of new sheltered benches and will arrive shortly to the Rangers home field.
“Now players can be protected from the elements,” said James Darby the Cochrane Rangers Soccer Club’s team manager and board member.
New benches will replace the old wood ones that offer no protection from wind or rain, which has forced players to find shelter far from the pitch.
These new benches will allow players on the bench to support their team in all weather conditions said Darby.
The benches are a welcomed upgrade the facility as the Cochrane Rangers Soccer club supports six teams, which average 25 to 30 players per team.
The club is always welcoming new players for their teams, for more information on how to join, visit www.cochranerangers.com.
