(Red Lake, ON) – Members from the Red Lake Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) as well as members from Pikangikum Police Service are partnering up to play a charity game of hockey against the Red Lake Rams on Tuesday, February 28 at 7:00 pm at the Cochenour Arena in Red Lake.
Admission is a non-perishable food item, which will collectively be donated to the Red Lake Indian Friendship Centre Food Bank. There will be a puck toss and other fundraising activities. All funds will go to support KARE (Kids Are Recreationally Equal) and The Push for Change Foundation.
“The Push for Change is a perfect opportunity to engage with community stakeholders and partners to spread awareness about homeless youth and help mitigate the underlying risk factors that lead to the vulnerability of homelessness.”
– J.V.N. (Vince) HAWKES, OPP Commissioner
“Having the OPP as a community safety partner helps both our organizations engage Ontario communities with a shared message on what we need to do to prevent, reduce and end youth homelessness.” – Joe ROBERTS, The Push for Change
