Sunday, November 27 at 3 pm on Sherbrooke Phoenix will receive their fans at the Palais des Sports Leopold-Drolet in a spirit of mutual aid and solidarity with the traditional game of doggies. A match necessary for families in need.
“A teddy bear is the hug in children. For the holiday season, it’s even more symbolic. More than that, I should say a universal symbol. There are many immigrants who spend at home. Although we do not always speak the same language, the reactions are the same radiant smiles and magic in the eyes. Giving each child a teddy bear is a way for us to warm the hearts and welcome them in our own way, a Merry Christmas. We thank the Sherbrooke Phoenix for making it possible. “- Says Claude Belleau, General Manager at Estrie-aide.
Estrie-aide also will present a free teddy bear for each child that will pass the store throughout the month of December.
To raise a maximum amount, fans are encouraged to bring them to the game on Sunday November 27th. After the Phoenix score their first goal, fans will throw their stuffed animals on the ice. They will subsequently be redistributed to Estrie-aide, Sherbrooke an organization that has been giving back to the community since 1997.
“Estrie-aide recycles clothing, furniture, appliances … to give them a second life. This material recovery prevents the objects being brought to landfills, helps keep people working and to benefit the community. “Says the Estrie-aide CEO.
