As many of you know, hockey gear can be an overbearing expense, especially when you add on the registration fees, tournament and traveling costs.
We have teamed up with the Orleans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre (OCCRC) http://crcoc.ca/ and are hoping to generate a mass donation of new and gently used hockey gear for children between the ages of 5-16. Safety is a must in hockey, therefore please make sure the equipment is usable.
We would appreciate donations of the following:
– Shoulder pads
– Elbow pads
– Shin pads
– Hockey pants
– Neck guards
– Goalie gear
– Hockey bags
The resource centre will make sure that the hockey gear is provided to families in need of assistance. Money donations can be made directly through the resource centre and donors will receive a tax deductible receipt for donations over $100.
Ms. Suzanne Wert – Manager of Finance and Administration (at the OCCRC) has generously arranged for us to use their location as a Drop-Off for the hockey equipment. Drop Offs can be made from:
February 1, 2014 to May 30, 2014
Mon-Friday – 8:30 – noon and 1:00 – 4:30pm
Please see the receptionist at: 240 Centrum Blvd., Unit 105, Orleans, ON K1E 3J4
