Houston Youth Hockey Group is excited to announce the Internal Revenue Services process's official finalization in becoming a 501c3 tax-exempt organization. Today the organization takes flight with its founding principle set in place to "give every child the chance to experience hockey in Houston" by focusing on improving the overall community awareness of youth hockey and improving the number of players engaging in the sport. The organization aims to give dryland hockey equipment to schools, community centers, and other youth activity centers throughout the year, to give kids the chance to experience hockey. In addition, the organization will strive to maintain an active presence in the community by attending festivals, events, and fairs that are financially possible.
Why we ask for $20,000
We have launched an inaugural fundraiser to raise funds for the organization. This $20,000 will equip the organization with the necessary financial resources to actively improve the community awareness and community engagement of the sport of youth hockey in Houston. Our organization maintains the philosophy that every child should be able to experience hockey. As soon as the financial resources are available, we plan to start donating dry land equipment to community centers, schools, after school programs, and sports complexes that cannot afford to purchase this equipment. In addition to providing kids with dry land hockey equipment, we also envision attempting to attend the community fairs, festivals, and events that are financially possible to participate in. The cost of dry land hockey equipment and attending community events do not go away.

Houston Youth Hockey Group is excited to get the word out about how our organization plans to make hockey an everyday word on Houston's streets. We are excited to see the faces of kids when they first experience hockey, and we are looking forward to the years ahead. Our goal at the end of the day is to allow every child to experience hockey in Houston, and we're doing it one puck at a time.
