Celebrating the season of Thanksgiving, the Niagara Jr. Purple Eagles Travel Hockey League will be collecting cash donations and non-perishable food items during the Annual Thanksgiving Travel Hockey Tournament at Niagara University's Dwyer Arena. All donations will benefit the Community Missions of Niagara Frontier. The Niagara Jr. Purple Eagles Thanksgiving Tournament is held November 24th - Nov. 28th and hosts over 40 hockey teams from Western & Central New York, Southern Ontario, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The NJPE organization takes a civic minded role in the Niagara Falls region and encourages many of the hockey teams to volunteer at the Community Missions of Niagara Frontier. In addition to the food collection, this year the NJPE Travel Board will make a $1,000 donation from the proceeds of the tournament to Community Mission of Niagara Frontier.
