‘Hockey means family’ - local team competes for charity

McDougall Marlies team to submit its good deed for Soup Kitchen to Chevrolet’s Good Deeds Cup, could win $100,000 for charity

The Sault’s McDougall Marlies hockey team has done its part for the Sault Ste. Marie Soup Kitchen Community Centre, and just in time for the winter months.

The team, consisting of 11 and 12-year-old players, spent Saturday, Dec. 14 with members of the Sault OPP detachment at Rome’s Your Independent Grocer for the annual Stuff a Cruiser event to collect donations of food for the Soup Kitchen Community Centre.

Shelves at the soup kitchen were severely depleted before the young players and the OPP dropped off the donations of food at the soup kitchen’s location on James Street.

The Soup Kitchen Community Centre now has food to last a few months.

Because Chevrolet holds a Good Deeds Cup competition for all Pee-Wee hockey teams, McDougall Energy has decided to enter the Marlies team’s good deed into the competition.

The prize for the competition is $100,000 for a local charity.

McDougall’s application will include a brief video posted to YouTube.
