The EGMHA Hockey 4 Hunger
program was established in 2007 by parents to teach our players
in the association the importance of “giving back” to the community with
something many of us take for granted – FOOD!
Over 13 years, the Hockey 4 Hunger fundraiser has
generated over 144,000 LBS of non-perishable
items to donate our local food banks. Last
season due to Covid-19, we ran the fundraiser virtually for the first time and
were able to raise $8,100 for our local food banks!
As we are all aware, we are still in the middle of a pandemic, so our 2021 Hockey 4 Hunger program will continue in a virtual format this year in order to keep our players, families and community safe. As an association it is our goal that this fundraiser will continue to teach our players how these donations provide critical support to those who are less fortunate in our community.
We encourage you to discuss this topic with your players, as your contribution, big or small, will help to support those in need. All funds raised will go directly towards our local food banks:
- Mount Albert Food Pantry
- Holland Landing Food Pantry
- Sharon Food Closet
- Newmarket Food Bank
Please donate now as we need your support to achieve our 2021 Hockey 4 Hunger Online fundraising goal of $5,000 by December 24, 2021. We encourage you to share this online fundraiser with your friends, families, coworkers, and anyone else you can think of as this year our local food banks need our help more than ever!
