The Canton Cheifs and Dick Scott Automotive Group Co-Host Toys for Tots Drive

The Canton Chiefs are thinking about more than hockey this time of year.

Canton’s varsity hockey club teamed up with Dick Scott Automotive and Toys for Tots to help make the holidays special for families around the metro-Detroit area.  During their Dec. 9 game against Novi at Arctic Edge Arena in Canton, the players, their families, and fans in attendance were encouraged to bring toys to donate to children in need.

“We understand the joy something like this can bring to a child’s life, especially during these challenging economic times,” said Canton coach Jeremy Majszak.

Dick Scott Automotive chipped in with $10 coupons for oil changes for every toy that was donated to the cause that night.

Majszak was also happy to see who else showed up with toys to help support the cause.

“All of our boys and all of our parents and some of the fans had brought [toys], and what was a real classy, really good thing – the Novi team also brought toys,” Majszak said. “I think every single kid that got off that bus had a toy in their hand.”

Cheryl Greenshields, a parent of one of the Canton players, initiated the event.

“That was something she said she would like to do,” Majszak said.  “And of course, we had no problem doing that and wanted to so she set it up…it was really good to collect that many toys.”

Coach Majszak feels that this is something Canton might do for years to come…
