Jerseys for Humboldt Day/Apr 16, 2018
NewRoads Automotive Group joins the movement #JerseysforHumboldt Day
It was not too long ago that our NewRoads Community Crew dawned sturdy denim supporting a great cause. I am proud to say we also united with thousands of communities for #JerseysforHumboldt Day sporting team jerseys or a green ribbon.
On Thursday, April 12 it was suggested by hockey parents to have #JerseysforHumboldt Day that started in British Columbia and quickly spread across Canada and beyond. We at NewRoads decided to do the same and encouraged everyone to wear a jersey on Thursday. We also asked for a $5 donation from everyone and the NewRoads Automotive Group would match the total donations.
“It is impossible for any of us not to have heard of the tragic events in Saskatchewan this past week involving a junior hockey team called the Humboldt Broncos. Sixteen young people lost their lives in this tragic accident. As a hockey-loving nation, the tragedy is, quite understandably, reverberating across the nation.” NewRoads President Michael Croxon said
It is amazing what can happen when a community comes together and can inspire a movement.
We are very grateful to everybody in the community whose continuous support allows us to continue our mission of giving back to the community and helping people find NewRoads.
