P.K. Subban is doing some good for Ukrainian refugees arriving in Montreal

Through devastating current events happening in Ukraine, New Jersey Devils Defenseman P.K. Subban is generously helping Ukrainian refugees arriving in Montreal.

Last week, P.K. Subban announced that he will match donations for Ukrainian children undergoing cancer treatments in Montreal. Subban, who formerly played for the Montreal Canadiens, has been a representative of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation for several years and has raised and donated millions of dollars for the hospital.

He will be matching donations up to $100,000 that will go toward every aspect of the medical process including transportation, meals and treatments (via Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation, Montreal Gazette).

“These children and their families will arrive in Montreal with nothing but the clothes on their backs. The Children’s needs your help to support these traumatized families so that they can focus on what is most important: helping their child get well. Your donation will help to pay for accommodation, travel to and from the hospital, meals, medication, psychological support and translation services.”

Subban is passionate about giving back to the community and helping people however he can, and he feels as though it is important for him to use his platform for good causes (via Arpon Basu, NHL News).

“You know what? For me, it’s taking the step forward, it’s taking the initiative to lead by example. It’s not about the money; it’s about leading by example and bringing a community together. In Montreal, this is my city just as much as it’s yours. It’s my job as well to make a commitment to this city that everyone can understand. If because I play for the Montreal Canadiens and people know me because of that and I can use that to raise money for the hospital, that’s my responsibility. I feel that.”
