Winter Wear Drive THIS Friday, October 26th vs. Erie Otters

Oosterveld Heating and Air Conditioning’s third annual Winter Wear Drive in support of Hope House is this Friday, October 26th at the Sleeman Centre when your Storm host the Erie Otters.

Last year over $500 was raised from the Chuck-a-Puck fundraiser and 10 bins were filled to the top with donations of winter clothes for those in need in our community.

When you enter the rink, volunteers will be on hand to collect your much needed gently used or new hats, coats, boots, mitts, and scarves, in support of Hope House, which is a non-profit organization helping to overcome poverty in the Guelph area by providing tangible, compassionate assistance and care to those in need in the community.

The winner of the Chuck- a- Puck Fundraiser on Friday will receive a team autographed jersey. Every dollar raised from the puck toss will go to Lakeside Hope House. For every winter wear item donated, fans will receive a draw ticket to win a team autographed limited edition collector’s stick.

Most Needed Items:

  • Adult Boots
  • Socks
  • Jackets
  • Gloves
  • Toques

Please Help keep our community warm this winter if you are able. The Winter Wear Drive will be Friday night, but bins will be in place at our game on Sunday afternoon as well so if didn’t bring an item(s) on Friday, you can still help.

For more information, to volunteer or donate please visit or call (519) 265-4299.
