Hyundai Hockey Helpers

In an effort to help more under-resourced Canadian youth get involved in Canada's favourite game, Hyundai Hockey Helpers is coming to Markham, ON as the puck drops on Hyundai Hockey Helpers Month. During October, Hyundai Hockey Helpers is reinvesting in the local community and providing youth with an opportunity to experience organized hockey. Through grassroots initiatives that include dealer fundraising activities and ambassador teams in local hockey arenas, Don Valley North Hyundai hopes to raise funds to help local kids get in the game.

Hyundai Hockey Helpers officially launched in early September and is designed to improve the lives of deserving children by helping at least 1,000 under-resourced Canadian youth play hockey through a national partnership with the not-for-profit organization KidSport Canada. Hyundai is launching Hyundai Hockey Helpers Month to make a stronger impact and help even more kids play hockey.

Don Valley North Hyundai, and other Hyundai dealers across Canada, will host local fundraising events where 100 per cent of funds generated will go directly to providing local kids with the opportunity to play. Throughout October, Don Valley North Hyundai will be raising funds by promoting donations at cash registers, donations at service visits, donations at vehicle sales, and may be implementing additional initiatives.

Also, ambassador teams will travel to 90 hockey arenas across Canada to reach families and get them involved. Locally, ambassador teams will visit Angus Glen Community Centre to raise awareness of the program and raise funds through donations.
