WHAT: After decades of supporting the St. Catharines and surrounding communities, Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold will be on the receiving end as CARSTAR St. Catharines presents them with a fully refurbished 2012 Dodge Caravan during a Niagara IceDogs playoff game on Monday, March 30, 2015.

For several years now Community Care has nominated deserving families in their region to which CARSTAR has donated vehicles, but this week Community Care CEO Betty-Lou Souter and staff will be presented the keys to a car that will be used by their organization to support their programs. The car giveaway will take place at the Meridian Center during the first intermission in front of a sold-out crowd at the IceDogs game.

On the donation, Betty-Lou believes, “this van will give us the opportunity to enhance the services we provide to those in need in our community. We are very grateful that CARSTAR recognizes and values the important work we do. They are a strong partner and continue to make a difference in Niagara.”

Game starts at 7:00pm

The families relying on Community Care for support will greatly benefit from the availability of this vehicle.
