Hockey Helps the Homeless in Niagara
In Hockey an assist is just as valuable as a goal. We are hoping that you can assist the RAFT in their fight against homelessness by helping youth reach that goal of living off the streets.
Hockey Helps the Homeless is an annual hockey tournament aimed at raising awareness and support for the homeless through education, fundraising and partnering with outreach organizations. the RAFT is one of three agencies that have been chose as a recipient of funds raised at the Niagara Hockey Helps the Homeless event. This is a fundraising event that has been taking place across the country in NHL cities with former NHL players to raise funds and awareness around homelessness. This is the first year it will be taking place in Niagara and outside of an NHL city.
