In a show of thanks to our sponsor, The John Tortorella Foundation, the U14 team spent a day giving back to a local animal shelter, The Humane Society of Tampa Bay!

The girls made homemade dog treats and no sew cat blankets.

They collected donations through a drop box at the Brandon Ice Sports Center and from family and friends.

After all the baking and sewing they took a van to the Humane Society and delivered all the goodies to the animals, played with the puppies and toured the animal shelter! They fell in love with one puppy in particular and even asked if we could get him as our “Team Dog!” Maybe one day!

We’d like to thank the John Tortorella Foundation for the generous donation and the Humane Society for allowing the girls to tour the facility and giving them the opportunity to give back to the community! We hope to do more in the future! Maybe even an annual donation collection!

Also, a very special thank you to Sandra Hinckley for organizing this wonderful day!
