Warriors launch 2019 Good Deeds quest

WEST CARLETON – Thanks to some help from last year’s champs, the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup launched this year’s campaign to find the hockey team that exemplifies community.

The Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup, in partnership with Hockey Canada, is back for its fourth season and Chevrolet is inspiring Canadian pee wee haockey teams to give back to their communities in a big way. Whether it be volunteering at a local food bank or organizing a clothing drive, teams are encouraged to take the positive values learned on the ice and apply them off the ice in their community. Teams will have a chance to win a $100,000 donation for a charity of their choice and will have their names proudly engraved on the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup, as large as the Stanley Cup, to commemorate the incredible contribution made to their community for years to come.

“We have seen thousands of good deeds in local communities since the start of the program in 2016,” said Laura Pacey, Brand Director for Chevrolet Canada. “Each year we are humbled and inspired by the work ethic, accountability, comradery and overall positive values these teams showcase and can’t wait to see the impact that will be made this year. We truly believe the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup is more than a program or promotion, it is a rallying cry to inspire a movement of good!”

Good Deeds can be anything that makes a difference in the community. Last year’s winners, The West Carleton Warriors embarked on disaster relief efforts following a devastating tornado that tore through their hometown months before. The year prior, The Pas Huskies from The Pas, Manitoba saved their local homeless shelter from closing its doors forever and in the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup inaugural year, the Glace Bay Minors organized a Valentine’s Day celebration for the residents of a continuing care home. It’s time to get inspired by another Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup Season that shows how good deeds not only make great people off the ice they make a difference in communities from coast to coast to coast.

“Last year was an amazing experience for our small community,” West Carleton Warriors head coach Sean Lecuyer said. “The support was contagious and ran deep through everyone’s hearts. Thank you for this brilliant program.”
