St. Catharines CYO...One Good Deed
Do you believe in "right place, right time" moments?  I was at the arena just by chance yesterday as my son was called to referee at the last minute.  While I was standing at the boards watching the Tyke game he was working, I overheard a Dad talking about his son's hockey bag being stolen/taken in error.


He said his son, who is 5 years old had cried all afternoon over losing his hockey bag. He mentioned how his son's Team had pulled together and they were able to borrow some gear from older kids but that wouldn't be a permanent solution.
This got my wheels turning and I realized that CYO has a locker of gear that is used for our Just Try It! Program.  So after the game, we went to the locker and we were able to outfit this young hockey player with all of the gear he had lost!

Thank you Renée and St. Catharines CYO for your kind gesture and for helping to ensure that this player got back on the ice!
