In the upcoming season, IBEW 993 will be once again sponsoring the Kamloops Storm's Shoot to Win contest.

In a show of community support, IBEW 993 is thrilled to announce their participation in helping the Kamloops Storm Hockey team.

The donation was made as part of IBEW 993's ongoing commitment to strengthening the local community and promoting the well-being of its residents.

With this donation, IBEW 993 aims to help the Kamloops Storm in its pursuit of excellence both on and off the ice. The funds will be used to support essential team expenses, such as equipment purchases, travel costs, training facilities, and other operational needs. This assistance is expected to contribute significantly to the team's ability to compete at the highest level and achieve their goals during the upcoming season.

"IBEW 993 takes great pride in being an active member of the Kamloops community," said Jim Bicknell, Business Manager of IBEW 993.
