THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE (NHL®), THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE PLAYERS’ ASSOCIATION (NHLPA), BAUER HOCKEY AND HOCKEY CANADA HAVE LAUNCHED THE HOCKEY EQUIPMENT RELIEF PROGRAM. AS COMMUNITIES BEGIN TO RE-OPEN AND KIDS LOOK TO RE-ENGAGE IN SPORTS, THIS PROGRAM WILL HELP FAMILIES FINANCIALLY IMPACTED BY COVID-19 GET THEIR KIDS BACK ON THE ICE.
The Hockey Equipment Relief Program is an equipment donation initiative which includes $2 million of hockey gear, with upwards of 7,000 sets to be distributed to families and communities in the seven Canadian NHL cities (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal) and other regions across Canada. In the distribution of this equipment, particular attention will be provided to support minority communities.
