With the Memorial Cup handed out and the Canadian junior hockey season in the rearview, we are proud to announce that as presenting sponsor of the Oshawa Generals’ Adopt-a-School program we distributed more than 1,000 pairs of tickets across 26 local elementary schools during the 2022-2023 season.
In collaboration with the Oshawa Generals, this program offers the opportunity to promote electrical safety in schools across our community, while recognizing students excelling in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This important, community-focused partnership is a part of a two year agreement intended to encourage students, promote public safety, and help grow the game of hockey in our community.
“As two long standing members of Oshawa’s community, the opportunity to partner with the Generals made a lot of sense as a way to encourage youth in our community to pursue education in STEM fields and learn about electrical safety. In return these students were rewarded with an exciting night watching our city’s beloved hockey team, and for many students this was their first experience at a live hockey game.”
– Mike Weatherbee, Managing Director, Oshawa Power
As a thank you for the tickets, many students, families, and teachers drafted handwritten letters to the Oshawa Power team telling us about their experience. For many students, this was not only a fantastic reward for academic success, but sparked a love of the Generals and the game of hockey.
“My son has never been to a Generals game before. He now wants to play hockey! He hasn’t stopped playing with his mini stick since the game. This is so nice that you do this for the school and children. Thank you!”
– Parent of Program Participant
We look forward to celebrating continued academic success in schools across our city while providing valuable education about electrical safety in our community during the Oshawa Generals 2023-2024 season.
