Honda Donates 2015 Odyssey to Ronald McDonald House of DC
Honda, the official automotive sponsor of the NHL, announced today that it would be donating a new 2015 Honda Odyssey minivan to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington DC. The charitable contribution is made in collaboration with the National Hockey League’s “The Biggest Assist Happens Off the Ice” program, the NHL’s ongoing social responsibility program that attempts to address important social issues in North America and around the world.
The Washington Capitals hosted the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic on January 1, 2015, in Washington DC. The hometown Capitals defeated the Blackhawks in the outdoor game, and as part of Honda’s partnership with the NHL, the winning team donates a brand new vehicle to the local Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The League also donated $200 for every shot on goal during the game, for a total of $14,000 given to the local RMHC.
The Honda Odyssey will be used by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington DC (RMHCDC) to aid in transporting families to and from the hospital.
As kind a gesture as this donation is, it’s still not as heart-warming as the new Honda Accord that the automaker donated to the American Special Hockey Association, on behalf of Washington Capitals’ star Alex Ovechkin’s friend Ann.
