A two-week hockey equipment drive kicked off Friday at City Hall, encouraging Winnipeggers to drop off their used equipment at any of 16 locations throughout the city.

“I know that playing hockey gave me direction as a young person,” said councillor Thomas Steen, a former player on the Winnipeg Jets. “No young person should be denied the opportunity to participate in sport and be engaged in their community because they can’t afford to play.”

Donated equipment will be distributed in Winnipeg by Sport Manitoba’s KidSport program, Winnipeg Minor Hockey and Hockey Manitoba.

  • City Hall Council Building, 510 Main Street
  • Bertrand Arena, 294 Bertrand Avenue
  • Billy Mosienko Arena, 709 Keewatin Street
