Hockey with Heart is the compassionate arm of the Unionville Men’s Hockey Club that is proactively engaged in making a difference in our community.
They are a local grassroots organization made up of UMHC players and volunteers that are committed to supporting and giving back to the community.
HWH is an organization that acts as a catalyst and enabler to bridging community needs with a helping hand when needed.
The group’s main community involvement piece is the annual Food Drive which supports the Markham Food Bank. This has been taking place for many years and involves collecting food donations at various locations (arena drop boxes, and door to door collections on local streets).
Each year, the league also donates approximately 250 Christmas turkey dinners to local families in need.
The huge success each holiday season is thanks to the many volunteers and the community at large who donate food and their time
