Hockey players are extremely giving, caring people (provided you’re not wearing the rivals’ jersey). Few communities are as dedicated to giving back as the hockey community is. Here, we’ll list some examples of hockey players helping out and giving a hand-up!
Editor’s Note: We are not affiliated with Dawg Nation Hockey.
Dawg Nation Hockey was brought to our attention, after someone Googled us. We did a little research, and they are doing some great work in their Colorado community. Dawg Nation’s website reports they have raised over $2.1 million, since its inception in 2011. They are a registered 501(c)3 organization.
From the Dawg Nation website: “Dawg Nation is an organization committed to serving the hockey community. We identify individuals and families in need, and strive to provide relief through difficult times.”
