Special Assistance Fund Created by Toronto Teams to Support Event Staff

There may be no sports on television, yet the sporting world is coming together to help.

In light of the unforeseen challenges created by the rapid spread of COVID-19, Toronto professional sports teams have teamed up to help create a special assistance fund to further support hourly event staff should they be in need of financial assistance during this difficult time.

“For me, the definition of teammate was never limited to the people who wear our jersey or who work for the Raptors. We showed that last spring in good times. Now we’re coming together to get through these unprecedented times,” Raptors president Masai Ujiri said. “Being a good teammate means looking out for our neighbours, friends and the people we work with. Through this fund, we all pledge to be good teammates to our arena, stadium and support staff. We want to be here for them, the way they are always here for us.”

Team president of TFC and the Argonauts, Bill Manning, Brendan Shanahan of the Maple Leafs, Masai Ujiri of the Raptors, and Mark Shapiro of the Blue Jays will lead the efforts to aid as many workers as possible for the foreseeable future.
