Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price and his wife Angela are doing their part to help those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through their charitable foundation, the Price family is donating $50,000 to the Breakfast Club of Canada emergency fund to help children across the country.

“We are lucky to have everything we do, when so many people lack access to healthy food,” Angela Price said in a statement. “We feel compelled to do our part so that the most vulnerable children and communities in the country, including Indigenous communities, aren’t victims of food insecurity during this crisis.”

The Breakfast Club of Canada says the funds raised “focus on food-insecure households with children across Canada, including those in Indigenous communities,” target high-need neighbourhoods, and that more than 50 organizations have applied for assistance from the Club thus far.

For the past five years, the Price family has supported the organization through different initiatives including an annual fundraiser held in Kelowna, B.C. which has raised more than $820,000 to support the Club’s mission.
