Canadian Tire Makes A Major Donation

Pipestone Flyer

For the fourth year in a row the Leduc Canadian Tire Store has made a major donation to Leduc Minor Hockey. On Thursday, October 30th Head Store Manager Behn Matthews of Leduc’s Canadian Tire presented a check to President Chris Clowes of the Leduc Minor Hockey Association for $14,025.00.

The money is derived from Canadian Tire’s skate sharpening program where 100% of the $5.00 charge for sharpening skates is donated to Minor Hockey.

President Clowes said Leduc Minor Hockey is very grateful for Canadian Tire’s involvement and the funds assist in the Association’s ability to purchase replacement uniforms and the general expenses required to run Minor Hockey programs. This in turn assists the Association in keeping registration costs down.

Canadian Tire Manager Matthews indicated that over 2,800 skates were sharpened during the past year with every single penny going directly to Leduc Minor Hockey. This program is unique in that hockey players get a skate sharpening service while the cost comes directly back to the Leduc Minor Hockey Association and indirectly back to them and their team.
