How you can donate to the Ottawa Senators Foundation Telethon
The Ottawa Senators Foundation Telethon, powered by Mitel, will air on TSN5 on Thursday, Feb. 27, prior to and during the Senators home game against the Vancouver Canucks. The telethon portion of the broadcast will start at 6:30 p.m., one hour prior to puck drop.
With support from the community, the Ottawa Senators Foundation is breaking down the barriers to sport and recreation, educating youth about the dangers of substance abuse and ensuring that specialized physical and mental healthcare services are available to those who need them most. Thanks to donors, sponsors, and fans, the Foundation was able to reach 60,000 kids with programming support this past year.
The Ottawa Senators Foundation Telethon will introduce fans and viewers to some of the people who have been impacted by the community work of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club and its Foundation. The broadcast will highlight four separate stories from The Sens Power Plays Program, the Capital City Condors, the Youth Services Bureau's Youth Hub and Roger Neilson House.
While gains are being made every year, there are still significant gaps that need to be addressed:
- Registration fees and equipment costs continue to climb
- New and dangerous substances are finding their way into schools
- Wait times for key healthcare services continue to grow
