This year, the virtual #Canada Life Cup raised more than $1.5 million for homeless support organizations across the country. As a thank you to all the participants, we donated an additional $200,000 to Hockey Helps the Homeless.
What is Hockey Helps the Homeless?
HHTH uses Canada’s love of hockey to raise awareness about homelessness and to raise money to support at risk Canadians. All funds raised stay in local communities, and since it was founded in 1996, HHTH has granted more than $18 million to local charities across Canada. In the past, HHTH has hosted Pro-Am tournaments, but this year they hosted a new virtual fundraising campaign - The Canada Life Cup - to allow fundraising to continue during COVID-19.
Help us #ShutoutHomelessness across Canada
COVID-19 has impacted rates of homelessness across the country, and shelters need more funding, food, personal protective equipment (PPE) and staff to cope.
It’s more important than ever that we keep raising funds to help those most vulnerable in our communities.
This year’s tournament might have finished, but the need is far from over. There are many ways you can still support HHTH as they continue to help at-risk Canadians.
You can still make a difference
Donations are still open, so you can still help make a difference to at-risk and vulnerable Canadians at a time when the need is greater than ever.
Proudly supporting HHTH for over 15 years
At Canada Life, we believe all Canadians should have a place to call home. That’s why we’re a National Founding Sponsor of Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHTH), a not-for-profit organization that raises money for local communities to provide shelter and support to at-risk Canadians.
