We mention it all the time on the morning show – we LOVE when you reach out to us.
So we were elated to receive some recent letters and emails about “Hockey Helps Kids” . It’s a very cool program in our city that pairs junior high students and charities. The kids have to research, interview and select a charity. Then on top of that – they have to produce an original video showcasing their charity.
Each school is partnered with an Edmonton Oiler as their “Team Captain” and then the voting begins!
The winning team gets $25,000 for their chosen charity! WOW! The other teams will get participation awards of $10,000 for their charity.
This year- the 5 chosen schools in Edmonton are:
Westmount (Team McDavid)
D.S Mackenzie (Team Draisaitl)
Dan Knott School (Team Lucic)
Dr. Donald Massey (Team Maroon)
Mary Butterworth (Team Nugent-Hopkins)
The videos are great – to watch them and to cast your vote click HERE ! Good luck to all the schools and remember – you only have until February 25th.
🙂 Chris, Jack & Matt
