Dear Member,
One of our member is in dire need of the entire Alberni Valley Minor Hockey Association help and it will really be appreciated if we all can join hands together and save her son. Her son is critically ill and needs to be taken to the UK for treatment. The trip has been paid for and he is due to leave on the 20th of June but she needs to get some special equipment for her son before the trip. A fundraising campaign has been created and we are counting on the entire family support. Below is the campaign, thank you for your support in advance. Any amount donated out of your kind heart will be highly appreciated, you can also help by sharing the campaign.
