The Senators In Your Community From Dec. 16 to Dec. 22

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 16, 2011) - The Ottawa Senators' year-long commitment to community outreach programs throughout the National Capital Region continues. The following is a look at the club's community schedule from Friday, Dec. 16, to Thursday, Dec. 22.

Senators Sport Chek Shopping Excursion

Sport Chek is partnering with the Senators to help Christmas arrive early for a number of underprivileged local youth. Senators' defenceman Jared Cowen, along with forwards Erik Condra and Colin Greening, will visit the Sport Chek location in the Kanata Centrum (801 Kanata Avenue, Kanata) on Monday, Dec. 19, from 2 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. to help children from the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa choose items including jackets, hockey sticks and other sporting goods that will enable them to enjoy the outdoors through the winter months. The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa was established in 1923 and maintains a primary goal of helping children and youth build self-esteem and stronger social skills.

This Holiday season, Sport Chek continues to meet the needs of Canadian families in providing them all that is required to stay physically active.
