We’ve partnered with cosupportingourtroops.com to gather items for military care packages at the door of our upcoming bout. Each person who brings one or more of the following items will receive a special DRD memento as long as supplies last:
- Gatorade and other powdered drink mixes
- White cotton over the ankle socks
- Beef jerky
- Nuts and sunflower seeds
- Trail Mixes
- Protein and fruit bars
- Your favorite snack as long as it will ship well
- No chocolate at this time of year
Volunteers and bins will be stationed at main entrances to collect items from fans and league members. Skaters and coaches can bring their items to the locker rooms.
We are also pleased to announce that Love, Hope, Strength plans to be at the rest of our bouts this year to screen for bone marrow donors. Stop by their booth to learn more about the quick and easy process to add your info to the registry — and help save a life.
Updates: enough items were gathered to make approximately 30 care packages for the troops, and approximately 25 sign ups were gathered by Love, Hope, Strength!
