Giving back to our community is an important part of our fabric at Humber Valley. In this time of great need, our hockey family is supporting a number of causes providing relief in the fight against COVID-19.
Humber Valley Club Donation to the Daily Bread Food Bank
On behalf of all Humber Valley members, we are donating $15,000 to the Daily Bread Food Bank in memory of George DeMarchi, a Humber Valley Alumni who passed away on April 5th. George was a true example of the passion and dedication that make our hockey community so wonderful. During his years with HVHA he was a beloved team manager, leader, mentor, and friend to all who knew him. He was an integral member of our hockey community who always put people first. George was a great supporter of the Daily Bread Food Bank and his family has organized a fundraiser in his honour with all proceeds going to DBFB. This donation will assist the residents of Etobicoke as we deal with one of the greatest challenges our community has ever faced.
Sharks A & AA Teams Raise $15,000 to Support Three Important Causes
Breakfast of Champions
Our front-line healthcare workers at St. Joseph’s Health Centre work tirelessly and selflessly to meet the healthcare needs of our west-end community. To help, we are donating $5,000 towards their “Breakfast of Champions” program. This program provides free meals to front-line hospital staff to keep them nourished throughout the day.
Sienna Senior Living Meals Program
We are donating $5,000 in support of staff at long term health care facilities in Toronto. These funds will assist in providing prepackaged meals to staff to take home to their families following long shifts caring for our city’s most vulnerable residents. This program also supports local restaurants with large meal orders.
Michael Garron Hospital Foundation
Through the Michael Garron Hospital Foundation Joint Centres Partnership, Humber Valley has donated $5,000 for the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE) which will directly impact staff at St. Joseph’s Health Centre, keeping them safe so that they can continue to assist the members of our community.
