In the 2009-2010 season, HP4K members spent 500+ hours of their own free time volunteering with kids and helped raise more than $20,000 for partner charities.
Some of the things we’re participating in:
Stick to Reading – HP4K’s first, original signature program, which is an incentive-based reading competition for elementary and middle school students. The program offers a quick, easy, fun and effective way to get pro hockey players involved with kids in their communities.
Give Moore for the Holidays – An annual HP4K signature event, challenging pro hockey players to give back to their communities in a big way during the holiday season.
Afterschool Programs – Developing and presenting lessons on sportsmanship, positive thinking, leadership and fitness, followed by some serious floor hockey action.
Ronald McDonald House Charities – Volunteering during evening activities sessions, engaging kids and their families in some fun distractions during a difficult time in their lives.
Boys and Girls Clubs of America – Spending quality time with students after school, promoting the Clubs’ core program centered on sports, fitness and recreation
