The West Carleton Warriors have won the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup.

The Warriors were unveiled as champions for the 2018-19 season during Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday night. They will receive $100,000 to be donated to a charity of their choice, among other prizes.

When tornadoes ripped through their communities on Sept. 21, members of the team were at the Carp Fair. After seeing the widespread damage and realizing friends and neighbours had lost everything, the team returned to the fair the next day to raise more than $4,000 for relief efforts.

The Warriors stepped up again in December when the community planned a Christmas party as a thank you for those who had lent a hand following the disaster. The team helped with set-up and tear-down, and volunteered as Santa’s elves to hand out gifts.

“They really want to keep helping,” Shelley Welsh, a Warrior parent, told West Carleton Online. “When the tornado struck, we saw all the emergency vehicles and all the hydro trucks. We wanted to help, but we weren’t allowed in. The kids were ready to go the very next day.”

In all, the team has raised more than $9,100 for West Carleton Disaster Relief, and it’s not done; the Warriors will be on the ground again this spring as clean-up and recovery continues.

West Carleton edged out the Kennebecasis Valley Devils and Pionniers de Lanaudière, who will each receive $5,000 for charity and Good Deeds Cup branded swag for being finalists.

This was the third season Chevrolet and Hockey Canada came together to award the Good Deeds Cup, which searches for the Peewee team that makes the biggest impact in its community.
