Used Hockey Gear for Kids with Disabilities

The league manager forwarded this message from Dr. James Eckner (J.T.):


Hi guys.

I recently started volunteering with a local hockey program for kids and adults with disabilities. The team is called the Ann Arbor Rockets (  The program outfits its participants with hockey gear that it obtains through donations.

Would you mind sending a query out to the Mott teams to see if folks have old gear in reasonable shape (i.e., better shape than my gear!) that they might be interested in donating to the program?  If so, let me know and I’ll make sure it gets put to good use!
