Hockey gives us so much, we have to give back

by: KP  Warrior Hockey Marketing

You walk into a rink and you know it.  Any rink.  The old community barn, a newer private facility or even any big-time NHL palace.  You look at the people around you and see one common connection, Hockey.  Each person has the same passion for a sport you do.  It’s what brings us hockey people together.  Hockey gives us so much…so when you have a chance to give it something back – do it.

These opportunities come to us on a regular basis.  We can’t always accommodate every request, but sometimes there are some that you just can’t say no to.

Hendrickson Foundation

The Hendrickson Foundation helps any kid and military veteran share our love for hockey. We sponsor the Minnesota Hockey Hair Video and use it to generate views to donate $30K in standing hockey and sled hockey equipment for them,  In addition to our equipment donation, last week we were able to raise over $1K in cash for them by charity auctions of our Land of 10,000 Locks hats.  Their motto is “Hockey Changes Lives” and we agree!

Learn more about the great work of the Hendrickson Foundation:

Boomer and Carton for the Mikey Strong Foundation

Boomer and Carton is a nationally syndicated NYC radio sports program.  They have taken a very personal relationship to another hockey family member who suffered a spinal injury during his high school hockey game, Mike Nichols.  When they reached out and asked Warrior to help outfit players for their charity game to benefit Mikey Strong and the Christopher Reeve Foundation (another hockey guy), we said yes.

Make A Wish Canada and the Winnipeg Jets

It’s not every day you get an email from an NHL equipment manager asking you to outfit a set of triplets.  So when Jason McMaster sent us an email asking to help some little kids out, we said yes.  Turns out, he wanted the kids to look as professional as possible for a very special day.

Connolly Gamble was diagnosed with a brain tumor when his brother went in for concussion testing and he was used as the baseline.  His Wish was to skate with the Winnipeg Jets and Make A Wish Canada granted it.  He’s such a great hockey kid that he requested if he could share the experience with his brothers.  How could we say no to such a classy kid!

And there’s video!

Needless to say, it’s easy coming in on a Monday morning when we could do some good for hockey people over the weekend.
