First Nations Hockey Equipment Drive on December 5
Submitted By Melissa Murray on Friday, December 4, 2020
The Peterborough hockey community is being urged to donate new or used hockey equipment to the First Nations Hockey Equipment Drive, which is coming to Total Construction Management (169 Lansdowne St. E.) in Peterborough on Saturday, December 5 from 9am to 12pm. 

Any families with hockey equipment can visit the donation drive-thru, which is COVID-safe (please remain in your vehicles throughout). 

  • Who: First Nations Hockey Equipment Drive & the Peterborough hockey community

  • What: COVID-safe hockey equipment donation drive-thru 

  • Where: Total Construction Management (169 Lansdowne St. E., Peterborough)

  • When: Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 9am to 12pm

  • Why: To collect and donate over 700 sets of equipment to Indigenous Youth

The Petes will be on hand to lend their support to the Drive, which has a goal of collecting 700 bags of equipment for Indigenous Youth in the province. Since its inception in 2015, the FNHED has collected, organized, sanitized, and donated thousands of equipment sets.

The organization also accepts cash donations through Their Opportunity. Tax receipts will be issued, and all funds will be used to buy new hockey helmets and support equipment transportation costs. 

Requested equipment donations include skates, elbow pads, shin pads, shoulder pads, helmets, pants, sticks, bags, and goalie equipment. There is not a need for undergarments, jerseys, socks, jocks/jills, or neck guards.

Fans can learn more about community initiatives and other local events by tuning in to Thursday Night Live every Thursday at 8pm ET, exclusively on the Petes Facebook page. This week’s guest on TNL is Sportsnet analyst Sam Cosentino.

The Peterborough Petes are the oldest continuously operating team in the Ontario Hockey League, having won nine OHL championships and one Memorial Cup championship over 64 years. The Petes have graduated over 180 players to the National Hockey League. For more information, visit www.gopetesgo.com and follow the Petes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
