On Thursday, February 16, SmartCell Sudbury Store Manager Abigail Robineau presented a cheque for $1000 to Director Rev. Amanda M. Robichaud of the Elgin Street Mission, marking the culmination of SmartCell Sudbury’s successful #onegoalonemealonemission partnership with the Greater Sudbury Cubs.
Over the 2021-2022 regular season, SmartCell Communications in Sudbury pledged to donate one meal, or $10, for every goal the Cubs scored on home ice.
The Cubs responded with a total of seventy-seven home-ice goals, and SmartCell Communications’ then rounded up the donation to a total of $1000.
Supporting the Elgin Street Mission is a matter of great pride for Abigail Robineau and the SmartCell Sudbury team.
“As someone who grew up in Greater Sudbury, seeing all of the people in need, I couldn’t be prouder to support the Elgin Street Mission for what they represent and do for the community on a daily basis,” says Robineau.
“My team and I are honored to work for a company that sponsors such an amazing charity that not only helps those in need but goes above and beyond to ensure that everyone who enters always feels welcome, comfortable and unashamed of their circumstances.”
The #onegoalonemealonemission campaign was a collaborative effort supported by TELUS, Sudbury Cubs Care Program, Elgin Street Mission and the Cathie Comtois Benevolent Fund.
