Guilford, Conn - On Veterans Day, our players spent the day helping out in our community. The U18 and U16 players went to several veteran's homes in North Haven, CT and helped by raking leaves for the Veterans yards.

The Elite Hockey Program partnered with the Veteran’s Day Project which is an opportunity for people in the community to give back to men and women who served our country. “We are a people-first organization,” said President Peter Alden. “At the end of the day, we want our players to be good people off the ice, and volunteering helps our players to become well-rounded people." 

The Veteran’s Day project is an organization, that started in 2014, and has a partnership, with American Legion 96 and the First Selectman. Alden, in the future, is looking forward to helping out these veterans in the future. “We couldn’t be more happy with how well the day went,” said Alden. “It was a fun day for our players to get away from the rink and help out in the community.” 

As a program, we are very familiar with our players volunteering and helping out those in need. In October, the U18 players went to Community Soup Kitchen in Branford to help serve members of our community by serving them food.  We look forward to helping out our community by giving back soon.
