Cornwall Ontario — Hockey players wearing the colours maroon, gold, and white will be knocking door to door canvasing several neighbourhoods on Monday, November 2nd, 2015 starting at 6pm.
Students from the Ontario Hockey Academy, including Taylor Davis and Samantha Kawejsza pictured here, will be collecting food for the Agape Food Bank this Halloween season for a fifth year in a row.
This year the canvassing will take place after Halloween due to hockey scheduling.
Teams will be visiting several different neighbourhoods including Riverdale, Center-town, around Home Depot, Sunrise Acres, and around Vincent Massey.
“It’s for a good cause, and it is the least we can do,” says Taylor Davis who is a member of the Social Committee at the Ontario Hockey Academy.
Student Athletes engaged in this food collecting activity will have the opportunity to volunteer and learn more about civic responsibility. The Agape Centre relies 100% on the donations of time, food, money, clothing, and other household items from the community to help families that access the services.
“The Agape Centre plays such an important role in providing support in the Cornwall community. We are truly happy that we can play a role in ensuring the center is able to continue to meet our city’s needs”, says Principal Jesse Ferguson.
“The Ontario Hockey Academy is pleased to go door to door this Halloween season to collect food for such an important charity in our community”.
