Community Involvement

SalDan Developments Ltd. is an active member of our community supporting many local groups and associations.

Sam’s involvement with volunteer work gave him the opportunity to serve in the capacity of President on many associations, and bus driver on others. SalDan supports and sponsors youth and adult oriented sports ranging from amateur to competitive, as well as actively taking part in endless fund raising activities.

The latest involvement in youth sports culminated with the return of Junior “A” hockey to Sault Ste. Marie. The Soo Thunderbirds Junior “A” hockey club flies high again after a more than 25 year absence. This club provides local athletes with the opportunity to combine education with hockey at a higher level while being able to live at home. As president of this club, Sam was able to bring together a large number of Sault area sponsors as well as convince many talented volunteers to give their time four the betterment of local youth.
