Hockey Jerseys for Hope – jersey drive for charity
I am very excited to announce that along with St. Mikes, Greenwood and Crescent, UCC has partnered with Hockey Jerseys for Hope to host a charitable hockey jersey drive.
Hockey Jerseys for Hope is a non-profit organization that collects used hockey jerseys and delivers them to those in need around the world. Their goal is to collect 1,000,000 hockey jerseys for those who need them. To date, they have distributed hockey jerseys to Nepal, China, Peru, Thailand, Chile, Zimbabwe, Vietnam, India and five other countries and are planning on visiting three new ones in 2020.
There will be boxes set up to collect jerseys in the main foyer and the basement.
Next time you go into your basement and see those old jerseys stacked up in a pile, think about the smile you can put on the face of a stranger by sharing the amazing Canadian feeling of putting on a hockey jersey. Thanks.
