It's about that time, your favorite time! You lift your bag onto your shoulder, sticks in hand, and you walk into the rink, immediately overcome by the smell and the sight of a fresh sheet of ice just waiting for you! You lace up the skates, put on your equipment and hit the ice! Nothing beats that feeling! For the next hour, all your worries go away and you are all smiles, enjoying the game you love: HOCKEY!
How would you like to give that feeling to someone else???
We are super excited to announce that you and us, together as a team, will be able to give that feeling and help some awesome kids from The Banners Hockey team.
Banners Hockey is a program of The Tender Bridge, a Baltimore 501c3 non-profit that gives some of Baltimore's most vulnerable youth a chance to escape their troubled home lives and enjoy playing the game of hockey.
These underprivileged boys are recruited from some of Baltimore's worst neighborhoods; boys that don't have parents who support them, some coming from families of violence, most living in poverty, and others without a dad or any parents. And almost all of them have never skated before.
Each week, Noel from the Tender Bridge picks them up, feeds them and takes them off the streets to teach them how to skate and play hockey. The Banners are mentored by dedicated volunteers; learning ice hockey and other life lessons designed to keep them out of trouble and on the right path in life. It gives them a safe place to share and discuss issues in their lives and a break from their ordinary lives.
Hockey brings joy to these boys lives!
$5 of each shirt you purchase will be donated to help provide them with a day on the ice and times they will never forget!
If you would like to donate extra money to help them out even more, please visit their GoFundMe page at: http://bit.ly/Banners-Hockey
Join Us Now in making a difference in these kids lives, helping make a difference through giving them that joy of playing hockey and escaping their everyday troubles!
