GATINEAU, Quebec - The Centre de santé et de services sociaux de Gatineau Foundation (CSSS de Gatineau Foundation) received a huge contribution today . The Ottawa Senators Foundation has committed to contribute a gift of $250,000 over a five-year period.

 

"I am proud to represent the players and management of the Ottawa Senators Foundation and club in supporting the CSSS de Gatineau Foundation. With our financial support to the CSSS de Gatineau, we want to contribute to the improvement of the health-care services offered to the children of the region," said Ottawa Senators forward Antoine Vermette.

 

Cyril Leeder, Ottawa Senators chief operating officer and foundation board member, said, "The Ottawa Senators community involvement has different aspects, but the support to children has always been a priority.
