Goodwill, The City of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Hockey League partner to make hockey more accessible.

"Your Donation Gets Everyone in the Game"

 
TORONTO (Monday June 20, 2011) - Making hockey, Canada’s national sport, accessible to more families in Toronto is the goal of the Hockey ReUse Equipment Bank, the partnership between Goodwill, The City of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL). Throughout the summer, Goodwill will be accepting hockey equipment at 9 Goodwill locations in Toronto.

Goodwill’s goal is to collect equipment that can then be resold at affordable prices at Goodwill’s Hockey ReUse Equipment Bank at 350 Progress Avenue in Scarborough. The Hockey ReUse Equipment Bank is slated to open early September prior to the 2011 – 2012 hockey season.

All equipment will be cleaned using FRESH GEAR’s chemical-free dry Cleaning Machine. Fresh Gear is the official supplier to Hockey Canada. “Fresh Gear’s goal since 2005 is to keep athletes safe by ensuring that the gear intended to protect them is not a source of harm.” says Mike Antinozzi, President and Founder of Fresh Gear
 
Fresh Gear’s President, Mike Antinozzi gives back to the community to ensure donated hockey equipment gets cleaned for the Hockey ReUse Equipment Bank.
