Erin Hillsburgh Minor Hockey Association and the U18 Rep team is pleased to announce our support of "Their Opportunity", a national registered organization, that donates sports equipment to remote indigenous communities. 

We will be holding our first Erin Community Hockey Equipment Drive, in support of Their Opportunity at the awards ceremony on April 15th, at Centre 2000. Please bring your unneeded hockey gear to the awards ceremony. Players from the U18 Rep B team will be on hand to collect your donation when you arrive. We will be set up at the front door, so you can't miss us.  The donated equipment will be picked up by "Their Opportunity" after the awards, and delivered to the Northern communities in Ontario, to promote hockey.

We will be collecting the following pieces of equipment: 

  • Skates
  • Pants
  • Shin pads
  • Elbow pads
  • Shoulder pads
  • Sticks
We are not able to donate helmets, or goalie equipment this year. 

"Their Opportunity" ONTARIO has a goal to fill 1000 bags of equipment... let's all donate and help them reach their goal.

If you have any questions about the equipment drive, please contact Cameron Thomson @[email protected]... or visit the website for "Their Opportunity".

Heatherlea Farm - Community Partner
Our family’s mission is to raise and craft the highest quality artisan meats, meals, snacks and treats using clean ingredients and local products. Our farm is also a fresh butcher, food shoppe and cafe in Caledon, Ontario. We’ve been raising pasture-fed Black Angus beef here since 1975! Our animals are grass-fed and free to roam outside in the fresh air and graze on the pasture. We finish our cattle on hay, silage, and a small amount of grains, without the use of growth hormones or antibiotics, so our beef is extremely tender with outstanding flavour. We promise it to be the best tasting and most tender beef your family has ever had!
