New and used skate drive
MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens are holding their third New and Used Skates Drive on Saturday, February 9 at the Bell Centre prior to the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. This initiative will help several local charities and youngsters who do not have the necessities in sports equipment. The Montreal Canadiens Children's Foundation flagship outdoor rink BLEU BLANC BOUGE program will be the main beneficiary of this event. Since 2008, the Foundation has built five multi-sport and refrigerated outdoor community rinks in the boroughs of Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension, Montréal-Nord, Verdun, LaSalle and Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. Fans attending the game are invited to contribute by donating new or used skates for this cause. Player spouses along with volunteers of the Foundation will be at various entrances of the Bell Centre to collect the skates. For their contribution, each participant will have the chance to win player-autographed items.
