For an­other year, the Ligue Fédérale des As (LFA), a leader in adult ice hockey in Quebec, in­vites you to its tra­di­tional sea­son’s Grand Fi­nale on May 4, 7:30 pm, at Arena Col­lège Notre-Dame. This event is an op­por­tu­nity to at­tend high-level hockey game in a fun fam­ily at­mos­phere while con­tribut­ing to Sun Youth’s Food Bank.

Sun Youth has been work­ing in food se­cu­rity since the 1950s. Fol­low­ing the 1981 re­ces­sion, the or­ga­ni­za­tion opened the first Food Bank in Quebec. De­signed to meet emer­gency needs, this ser­vice en­sures low­in­come fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als in pre­car­i­ous sit­u­a­tions have ac­cess to food and other ba­sic prod­ucts.The food bank in­cludes emer­gency food bas­kets, monthly food sup­ple­ments in­tended for those with spe­cial needs such as se­niors, preg­nant women and in­di­vid­u­als with HIV. An­nu­ally, Sun Youth dis­trib­utes close to 27,500 food bas­kets to more than 15,000 peo­ple. Over one third of its food bank users are chil­dren un­der 18 years old.They alone rep­re­sent 27%. These fig­ures con­firms that the or­ga­ni­za­tion is ful­fill­ing an es­sen­tial role in food aid in Mon­treal.

The LFA, founded in 2013 in part­ner­ship with the Brother­hood Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion (which was cre­ated in 1999), of­fers in­com­pa­ra­ble hockey and much more. On top of its am­bi­tion to be­come the ref­er­ence for adult hockey in the prov­ince of Quebec, it also has an im­por­tant so­cial role to play in the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Over the years, the LFA and the Hockey Brother­hood As­so­ci­a­tion have sup­ported var­i­ous pro­grams at Sun Youth and helped raise over $ 25,000 for the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

You too can con­trib­ute to Sun Youth, thus help­ing to en­sure the or­ga­ni­za­tion's sus­tain­abil­ity for the ben­e­fit of the com­mu­nity, by or­ga­niz­ing sports ac­tiv­i­ties or fundrais­ing events.There are dif­fer­ent and fun ways to make a dif­fer­ence!
