The $5,000 in kind donation will dress five players for the 2020/2021 season.

“Bauer is a leading manufacturer of ice hockey equipment,” said One Step Beyond Special Programs Developer Jared Woosley. “To have them as a partner, means the world to our team. The recent pandemic has our season on hold but the players are still working on their skills and looking forward to getting back on the ice. The donation is a light in these uncertain times.”
