Montreal Canadiens veteran goalie Carey Price has always been known for his tireless charity work.
During this time of world wide crisis both Price and his wife Angela Price have once again stepped up by donating $50,000 from their long running foundation towards the Breakfast Club of Canada’s Emergency Fund in order to make sure children across Canada get enough food during the fight against COVID-19.
“We are lucky to have everything we do, when so many people lack access to healthy food. We feel compelled to do our part so that the most vulnerable children and communities in the country, including Indigenous communities, aren’t victims of food insecurity during crisis,” Angela Price stated.
Price and his wife have for over five years been involved with aiding the Breakfast Club through their foundation with various activities including one called Shooting for the Stars, which works together with Air Canada Foundation with the prime purpose of giving the youth from Indigenous communities that thrill of venturing to Montreal for a week to be with their idol Carey Price.
‘’They’ve been so generous to Breakfast Club of Canada over the year, and this shows once again how invested they are in our mission,” President and Founder of Breakfast Club of Canada Daniel Germain said.
Currently, an estimated five million is required for Canadian youth and families right away.
This former Canadiens 2005 first round draft choice hails from the small area of Anahim Lake and the Ulkatcho First Nation where his mother Lynda acts as the present -day chief.
Prior to the NHL shutdown due to COVID-19, Price had a 27-25-6 record on the season with a 2.79 G.A.A. and a .909 SV%.
