As most of you know each year our Squirt House Silver families participate in a Community project in cooperation with H.E.R.O.E.S. Care where we raise money, collect personal items and then send Care Packages to our military men and women deployed overseas. Over the past 2 years our Rockets have collected over 5,000 items and sent over 50 Care Packages.
Each year we place Collection Boxes in our home rinks of Webster Groves, Brentwood, and Creve Coeur so that supporter can drop off donated personal items that we can pack up and send to our troops overseas.
90% of our teams will travel to tournaments and stay in hotels. If each family collects the little bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and the little bars of soap that the hotels put in each hotel bathroom each day at each tournament, we can collect over 4000 items at no cost as a club.
It’s just that simple. Maybe not all the families will do, but everyone that does will be helping in a great way. Teams could collect their own items and come pack Care Packages with us in February.
We have a massive potential network to collect the items are troops need. We need the help of every family in the club to make this the best year of all.
Families can also donate money to pay for postage or to help us buy items that are not collected. For more information use this link:
If anyone has any questions or knows how we can get items donated, please contact me.
Yours in Hockey,
Squirt House Silver
