Welcome to Team Prime Time Page! We are very grateful to Linda Tickins & Co. for their support.
We're participating in the Hockey Helps the Homeless Canada Life Cup to raise funds and awareness for a local youth shelter right here in the city: Eva’s Initiatives. Due to COVID the 2020 Hockey Helps the Homeless Tournament was cancelled. We now have an opportunity to make up a team of non players to help this needy cause.
Our team is comprised of members who all knew (the late) Steve Prime and hence our name, Team Prime Time. He had a passion to help homeless youth that was contagious. One of our members, Donna-Lee Waymann, was instrumental in bringing Steve, Eric and me to the youth homelessness cause in Toronto. We are very grateful to Linda Tickens & Co who have kindly supported our team with a significant donation.
Right now, Toronto’s homeless youth need our help more than ever. it is estimated that there are over 2,000 homeless youth on any given night in Toronto. Homeless shelters in the city have been drained of funding and resources in order to support the new unprecedented costs they are facing as a result of COVID-19 including additional staffing costs, personal protective equipment (PPE), transportation, increased sanitation and food security. Since March, they have been working around the clock to ensure our community’s most vulnerable residents are safe. But they can’t do it alone.
You can make a difference by donating generously to any of our team members, or to the Team as a whole. Together, with your support, we can reach our fundraising goal and shutout homelessness in Toronto. Hockey tournament or not, it's bigger than the game and we can all be part of the solution.
Thank you from all of Team Prime Time!
Mary and Eric Prime, Co-Captains
