St. Joseph Hospital is pleased to partner this year with the 4th Annual All Day Power Play Hockey Tournament to benefit Nashua Children's Home. The event begins at 9:00 am on Saturday, July 23rd at Cyclones Arena in Hudson and will feature sixty dedicated men and women playing 24 hours of hockey. The event is the Nashua Children's Home's largest fundraiser and has raised over $75,000 over the past three years. In addition to a $2,000 donation, St. Joseph Hospital employees will be skating in the event this year.
Nashua Children's Home serves the children and young men and women with its Residential and Educational Programs and Transitional Living Program. Nashua Children's Home provides care and stability to boys and girls unable to remain with their families, special education services for students who have not been successful in public school settings, and supportive housing for youth that have "aged-out" of care.
The community is encouraged to stop by the event between noon and 3:00 pm to cheer on the participants, enjoy free children activities and help support Nashua Children's Home. Children can bring their stuffed animals to get a free "check-up" courtesy of the staff at SJ Family Medial Center Hudson. In addition, donations will be accepted for the following items for Nashua Children's Home; Haircut gift cards, socks and underwear, large backpacks, shampoo, hair gel and spray, hair brushes and adult sized sweatshirts. Anyone that brings in a donation between noon and 3:00 pm will have a chance to win a giant teddy bear.
