That charity hockey game in Timmins in September between the Sudbury Wolves and the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies raised $10,000.  It was handed over on Wednesday by United Way North East Ontariot the Timmins Youth Wellness Hub.

United Way regional manager Jen Gorman spoke to about the donation:

“We identified that it’s a community priority, that the youth need a safe place and a safe space.  So we provided the funding over to the Youth Wellness Hub.

“(The Hub provides services) available for youth,” says Gorman, “ usually happening about twice a week and often in different locations throughout the community.  Various service offers, there’s always food offered, a lot of times if they’re at different schools, there’s an open gym and just a lot of activities for youth.”
