OTTAWA SENATORS EQUIPMENT FOR KIDS*
“The Ottawa Senators along with Canadian Tire, Canadian Tire Jumpstart, the Sens Foundation and the Ottawa District Hockey Association, have joined forces to make hockey more accessible to disadvantaged youth across our region by collecting gently used and new hockey equipment.
Fans are encouraged to drop off their excess hockey equipment at any of Canadian Tire location across Ottawa throughout the year or at select Ottawa Senators games and events. See below for listing of participating stores and Senators events.
Equipment donations of all sizes and pieces are welcome, from skates to shin pads, helmets to shoulder pads, and goalie equipment to gloves. Equipment will be gathered and provided to the Ottawa District Hockey Association for cleaning, sorting and redistribution to children and families within the ODHA and affiliated associations who may not otherwise be able to play hockey.
Organizations wishing to donate new equipment or fund the purchase of items for Equipment for Kids are eligible to receive a charitable tax receipt from the Sens Foundation. For more information, please contact the Sens Foundation by phone at 613-599-0323 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
