Manitoba Moose Yearling Foundation
What they do:
FOR 14 years, The Manitoba Moose Yearling Foundation has raised money for numerous children's charities in Manitoba. Whether it's presenting sick children with a new stuffed animal, orchestrating fundraisers at a Manitoba Moose hockey game, donating new equipment to the Children's Hospital, or raising money at a beer festival, the Yearling Foundation does it all.
Hopes for the holidays:
OVER the holidays the Yearling Foundation helps lift spirits of less-fortunate children in Manitoba.
Manitoba Moose players visit the Children's Hospital and the Rehabilitation Centre for Children bringing gifts to hockey-loving kids.
The Foundation also offers a sports program for children who cannot afford to play.
"We take inner-city kids that would normally not have a chance to play hockey, and buy them hockey equipment and ice time," said Trish Brown, co-ordinator of the Yearling Foundation. "We also help get some into the minor hockey system."
