Brantford

For The North Collection

Hockey unites us like no other sport, but there are many of our youth living in remote northern communities that are unable to play due to access and affordability of hockey equipment. For the past three years, Patty Dejonig her family have been gathering hockey equipment for First Nations youth.

Each year they’ve had generous donors bring their hockey equipment to the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre from 10am – 2pm in Brantford. They’ve also collected donations of winter coats, clothing, blankets and bedding.
