Investing in the future of young student athletes.
MAINE NORDIQUES ARE PROUDLY PARTNERED WITH THE HOWE FOUNDATION
TO MAKE CHARITABLE DONATIONS TO THE ED SNIDER YOUTH HOCKEY FOUNDATION
The Maine Nordiques are proudly partnered with The Howe Foundation where they will make two annual charitable donations to the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation.
The Nordiques and Howe Foundation will make two donations in the amount of $10,000 to Snider Hockey. The money will be equally distributed between The Mr. Hockey Scholarship to the Boys Program and The Mrs. Hockey Scholarship to the Girls Program.
The $10,000 total donation will be matched on a two-to-one basis, meaning this equals a $30,000 annual investment for the future of young student-athletes in Snider Hockey.
‘‘It is in Colleen and Gordie’s honor and memory that we offer this Scholarship to continue the goal of providing support for those in need, particularly the student-athletes of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation,” said Mark Howe, member of the Philadelphia Flyers Hall of Fame, and father of Nordiques Head Coach Nolan Howe.
This funding allows young men and women the opportunity to participate in the game of hockey due to their character, core values and need of financial support.
The Howe Foundation was founded by the late Colleen Howe, wife of the legendary Hall of Famer Gordie Howe, and grandmother of Maine Nordiques Head Coach Nolan Howe.
Also known as Mrs. Hockey, Colleen Howe’s vision was to assist those in need to be able to participate and enjoy the game of hockey. Through Colleen Howe’s efforts, The Howe Foundation continues its commitment to enrich the lives of those who would otherwise not be able to share and experience hockey—or any other sport.
The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation was created by Ed Snider, the late Philadelphia Flyers Chairman, and owner of the original Maine Mariners.
The Snider foundation emphasizes building lives, uniting communities and teaching children important life lessons.
Snider focused on the sport of hockey to assist with underserved boys and girls who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to play, with an emphasis on character development, life skills, fitness, nutrition and academics.
