Get your Kids in Gear!

By: Heather @ 7:50 pm

Get your Kids in Gear!Let’s face it, Canada loves hockey. We love to watch it, play it, talk about it, laugh about it and even yell about it (sometimes). Hockey is in our blood and we love it. However, sometimes those who want to play hockey simply cannot afford it. Skates, padding, jersey, shorts, helmet, protection, hockey sticks…you name and the price goes up and up. Many children watch their idols skate around on TV and want to be like them. Because of the cost, this dream of playing the sport they love to watch is sometimes not a possibility for many children. However, there are programs to change all that.

The Sun Life Financial Kids in Gear program is just one. This 2013-14 season Sun Life Financial with assist with the collection and also the purchase of hockey equipment for the children who need a bit of help to play this wonderful game. The program kicks off Monday Oct 7th and runs until Sunday, Oct 19th at various locations around Kitchener-Waterloo. Drop off sites include the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium and Sun Life Financial offices around the region. If you wish to contribute new or gently used hockey equipment, please find the donation bin closest to you.

You can also drop off your gear at Kitchener Rangers home games on October 11th, 14th and 18th.
