Team Challenge: Adopt A Seniors' Home!
Meadowvale Minor Hockey's ME51 Atom Red issues a challenge to hockey teams across Canada to spread some hockey cheer this winter. Many seniors would love to come to hockey games, but need to be invited and given a schedule. Larger, reputable seniors' homes have a bus, trained staff and an Activity Coordinator to transport and accompany seniors who are mobile and interested in outings. If your arena isn't very accessible or comfortable, they can choose to watch away games. Seniors can attend on a drop-in basis, depending on weather.
