H.E.R.O.E.S. Care

Hockey for HEROES


Last year the Rockets shipped 35 HEROES Care packages to our troops overseas.



TV News Report about our project

Coach, this is Rob Wunderlich here (dad of goalie alumni Chad, current JBS goalie, and goalie Drew, in his last Rockets year).  You may not remember but I have been in uniform for 28 years, and also just got back from spending Christmas, New Year's, and two kids birthdays deployed to the Middle East, on my final deployment.  I just wanted to say that there's nothing like getting a care package from home when you're over there and separated from life.  So a big thanks on behalf of my fellow Airmen over at Scott AFB


Comments from the Troops and People


This fantastic project was spearheaded by Kevin Whitworth, our Squirt Silver coach and expanded to include ou PeeWee Gold team and several other venues and groups in the St. Louis community.

This is amazing.  

Someone asked me the other day if Jack plays for the Rockets because they had heard this story on the news.  Thank you for the goodwill this shines on the organization and your generosity!

In 2016, the Hockey for Heroes program started as a youth participation project for Winterland Director, Kevin Whitworth, that snowballed into a team building project for his Rockets Squirt House Silver Team.  From there is expanded into schools, hockey clubs, and rinks.

This year the Rockets Squirt House Silver Team will be collecting personal care items, writing letters, and in early February will be shipping Care Packages to our Military Members deployed overseas.  Winterland and the Rockets have joined hands to make this a great opportunity for our kids.  

People interested in helping out can do one or all of several things:

*You can purchase items off the “special needs” list at your local store and drop them off at either Webster Groves, Creve Coeur, or Brentwood Ice Rinks in our Collection Boxes starting December 1st through January 27th.

*You can make a Monetary Donation to the Winterland-Rockets project and we will use it to cover shipping costs or buying items we need for the Care Packages.
