The new RBC Play Hockey program provides equipment and valuable life skills.
An amazing partnership between the Royal Bank of Canada, the City of Toronto, and the Toronto District School Board have provided young students with hours of skating fun. This new skating program, RBC Play Hockey, provides less fortunate children with proper skating equipment, and also teaches a valuable life skill. This year the program provided students from George Anderson Public School with helmets, skates, lessons and ice time. With the City of Toronto providing the rink time and RBC supplying the equipment and lessons, the only thing the students needed to do was have fun. Although there were a few minor slips and falls out on the ice, the proper skating equipment made it possible for students to safely and successfully learn how to skate.
