Welcome to the 2019-2020 hockey season!
Meadowvale Hockey will be hosting a sports equipment drive for First Nations communities. We will be collecting items from Wednesday, Sept 25th until the night of Sunday, Sept 29th. If you’re cleaning out the garage or shopping please keep this cause in mind. Donation boxes will soon be placed at Four Rinks.
The OPP will identify the First Nations communities in most need and distribute items to youth who are at risk. Any new or gently used sports items are welcome: hockey gear, jerseys, sports balls, nets, gloves, skipping ropes, bikes etc.
Many First Nations communities have declared a state of emergency due to the number of suicides and attempted suicides of youth in their communities, and they are in desperate need of sports goods. Teen suicide rates are six times higher on Reserves in Canada and are on the rise. Many communities are in crisis. We can help by collecting new and gently used sporting goods as these items are out of reach for many due to access and cost. When teens have nothing to do they run into trouble.
Thanks for your support!
