I would like to take a moment to let residents know about a unique bursary program organized by Hockey Eastern Ontario for kids.
The HEO Equipment 4 Kids Program is a program that helps supply equipment to young hockey players that wish to play the game but cannot afford equipment. The Bursary Program is eligible to anyone pursuing their post-secondary education who is a member of Hockey Eastern Ontario (Players, Referees, Coaches).
Residents can apply for the bursary here.
Until June 14th, the program is raising money by hosting a silent auction with great prizes including a Toronto Hockey Getaway Roadtrip, packages for the Ottawa Redblacks Home Opener, the Ottawa 67s, and the Ottawa Fury FC, and more. Bids are accepted online until June 14th. Please find the link to the auction here.
I hope that all aspiring hockey players, referees, and coaches take the opportunity to apply.
