These kids have big hockey bags, and big hearts as well! They don’t just skate together at Hoﬀman Estates Triphahn Center, they also volunteer together!
In the spirit of giving, the NIHL WolfPack boys’ hockey team and the NIHL Wolverines girls’ hockey team hung up their hockey skates and sticks and got ready for a diﬀerent kind of competition.
Instead of keeping track of goals, assists, wins, or losses, the boys and girls teams had a friendly “pack oﬀ” to pack food for Schaumburg’s, Feed My Starving Children. The kids volunteered and worked together to hand-pack meals that will improve the lives of malnourished children in Haiti. An hour and a half of packing, packed enough for food to feed 6 hockey teams for a whole year!
