Media Advisory - Toronto children receive donation from NHLPA Goals and Dreams fund
City Councillors Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto-Centre Rosedale) and Adam Giambrone (Ward 18 Davenport), Philadelphia Flyers forward Glen Metropolit and New Jersey Devils goaltender Kevin Weekes will join Paul Kelly, Executive Director, National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) and local children to announce this year’s hockey equipment donation from the NHLPA’s Goals and Dreams fund to young people in the community.

More than 100 sets of equipment have been donated by the NHLPA and will be distributed to the City of Toronto’s Regent Park North and South Hockey Program, Learn to Skate Program and the Wallace Emerson Rink Shinny Hockey Program. This is the second such donation made to the City of Toronto by the NHLPA.

Date: Friday August 8
Time: 10:30 a.m.
Location: Wellesley Community Centre - gymnasium, 495 Sherbourne St. (at Wellesley Street)

Co-ordinated by the City of Toronto’s Office of Partnerships in collaboration with the City’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation division, this donation seeks to make hockey more accessible to those who might not otherwise get the opportunity to be involved in this Canadian tradition. The Toronto Office of Partnerships actively seeks out strategic partners for City initiatives transforming great ideas into mutually rewarding partnerships.
