Youth Hockey League Rallies around Wounded Warrior Project

BERLIN, N.H., Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is able to provide its programs to the warriors it serves because of the support of donors, including individual supporters, corporate partners, and even groups of students. Raising awareness at the local level can make a big difference for WWP, something that Coach Corey Riendeau and his youth hockey team have started to put into practice.  

Raising awareness at the local level can make a big difference for Wounded Warrior Project, something that Coach Corey Riendeau and his youth hockey team have started to put into practice.

"Our players recently began supporting Wounded Warrior Project," Corey said. "I've also discussed supporting Wounded Warrior Project with other coaches of the Nor'Easter Hockey organization, and it sounds like they want to help as well."

Corey showed the WWP flag to the players he coaches, who are all 14 years old or younger, as a way to inspire them, but also to teach them about how WWP serves wounded veterans. Corey himself is connected to WWP through family.

"I have an uncle who's on the mental health staff," Corey said. "I consider him to be a great role model in my life. Through discussions with him about Wounded Warrior Project, I have learned about several impactful experiences he has had working alongside our nation's veterans and how they have been helped because of his and Wounded Warrior Project's work."

This is the first year the Nor'Easters have supported WWP, but Corey says it won't be the last. Young adults and children of all ages can support WWP through the Student Ambassadors program.
