Wawanesa Insurance Launches the Wawanesa Toy Drive in Partnership with the Canadian Hockey League

November 15, 2019 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) News Release

Whether unwrapping a teddy bear, a fire truck or a stethoscope, there's nothing like making kids smile during the holidays. This year, the Canadian Hockey League is proud to join Wawanesa Insurance, their independent insurance brokers, and local charities to host holiday toy drives in 36 communities across Canada.

CHL fans can get the warm and fuzzies by donating a new and unwrapped toy at any of the 36 Wawanesa Toy Drive games taking place across the country from November 16 to December 15 and at participating broker locations in each community. As a special thank you for donations, all toy donors will be entered into a Grand Prize draw for a trip for two to Kelowna for the 2020 Memorial Cup Presented by Kia.

"The Canadian Hockey League and our member teams are proud to support our communities and the Wawanesa Toy Drive campaign is another wonderful opportunity to help make a positive difference for families across Canada," said CHL President Dan MacKenzie. "We're excited to join our partners at Wawanesa Insurance and our passionate fans to help deliver thousands of toys and smiles to kids this holiday season."

If someone is unable to bring a toy to the game, Wawanesa has partnered with their local insurance broker partners to provide fans with convenient toy drive drop-off locations.

"Happy kids, neighbours helping neighbours, and some of the best hockey in the world - it's a winning combination to help more Canadian families enjoy this holiday season," said Selena Hinds, Vice President of Communications and Community Affairs for Wawanesa Insurance. "We are thrilled to partner with the Canadian Hockey League, independent insurance brokers and local charities across Canada on this country-wide holiday toy drive. For us at Wawanesa Insurance, supporting the communities where we work and live is the essence of who we are."

Wawanesa Insurance is the Official Auto and Home Insurer and proud partner of the CHL, WHL, OHL, and QMJHL.
