Originally announced on July 30, the goal of the program is to help communities and families financially impacted by COVID-19 get their kids back on the ice. The program is an equipment donation initiative that includes $2 million of hockey gear, with upwards of 7,000 sets of gear to be distributed to families and communities most in need in the seven Canadian NHL cities, as well as other regions.

The application period will remain open until September 28, followed by equipment distribution between Oct. 12, 2020 and March 1, 2021.
