Scotiabank, CCM and Project North to make a hockey equipment donation to the local community
CHURCHILL, MB, Feb. 6, 2020 /CNW/ - Scotiabank® Hockey Day in Canada (SHDiC) is excited to bring its cross-country celebration to Churchill Manitoba on Friday, February 7 and Saturday, February 8, with a donation of hockey equipment provided by CCM to the local community through Project North. The event will also feature a Community HockeyFest that includes hockey clinics hosted by NHL Alumni John Chabot and Mark Stuart and an autograph session.
As the title sponsor of the 20th annual Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada, Scotiabank is proud to support this celebration of hockey. Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada® is taking place this year in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, February 5-8, and continuing with celebrations across the country in three satellite locations: Churchill, MB; Burnaby, BC; and Ottawa, ON (Rogers Hometown Hockey stop).
Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada is about much more than just the game of hockey – it's about coming together as a community. Scotiabank is committed to supporting every goal, on and off the ice. Scotiabank believes hockey teaches kids values and lessons that they can use outside the arena, and for the rest of their lives. Helping kids succeed on the ice means helping them succeed everywhere. Since 2008, Scotiabank has proudly supported one million kids and counting. Hockey matters to Scotiabank because it matters to Canadians. We are fans, coaches, and players.
Like much of Canada, Churchill has a passion for the game of hockey. It brings people of all ages together and teaches important values, such as teamwork and respect, and that's why it's the perfect backdrop to celebrate Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada and well deserving recipients of the hockey donation through Project North.
Project North is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing and improving the lives of children in Canada's North. Scotiabank has supported Project North for more than ten years, as both organizations are committed to ensuring that children have the proper equipment to play the game of hockey, regardless of where they live in Canada.
