November 18, 2015Helping in the Community - Peewee B
The Ancaster Avalanche Girls Peewee B team kicked off the holiday season with a team-building event. The girls went shopping at a local Dollarama to purchase items to include in Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. They then went to Morgan Firestone Arena for a pizza party where they filled shoe boxes with the gifts they had purchased. It was a fun team bonding event for the girls and more importantly, a wonderful way to give back to those in need. Is your team doing anything special for the holidays?
