Midget Boys Spend a Morning Volunteering at Koats for Kids
Once again, the players and coaches of the midget boys Winnipeg Twins team spent a chilly December Saturday morning sorting, organizing and packing jackets, mitts, toques, scarves and boots at the local Koats for Kids warehouse. This volunteer commitment served as a way of giving back to the local community, while also helping build the players’ off-ice relationships.
Beginning as an optional volunteer initiative at the start of the season – in which players were informed of the difficult lifestyles and living conditions that many less-fortunate Manitoban children were dealing with – prompted the collection of countless warm winter coats and other gear/accessories to be donated to Koats for Kids. A total of 20 volunteers showed up on Saturday morning – the largest group ever to attend a packing session at Koats for Kids…. Certainly an experience that Program Manager, Donna Albak will not soon forget.
Along with physically coming down at 9:00 in the morning on a weekend to help prepare shipments, the gentlemen of the midget team also collected and transported coats to and from washing stations, sorted through pockets of freshly donated items, transferred bagged goods to and from outdoor shipping containers, prepared care packages, and organized ski pants, boots, jackets and mitts by colour, size and gender.
With the help of many family members, friends, colleagues and community members, the midget team donated a record amount of warm winter gear, and gained many insights into the every-day operations of local volunteer-driven establishments, such as Koats for Kids.
Well done gentlemen, well done.

Twins Executive Position Available - Equipment Director
The Winnipeg Twins AA hockey program is owned jointly between South Winnipeg Hockey Association and Fort Garry North Hockey Association. The Twins program is ran independently with its own set of board member, rules and regulations. Without strong support from volunteers the program would not be able to maintain its high level of success. The board is seeking new members who wish to give back to the hockey programs in their respective areas. The board would require you to meet a maximum of 1 night a month and perform various duties throughout the hockey season. Below is a list of positions available if you’d like to join the Twins team. Some positions would have a 1 year period where the current board member would transition the new member into that role.
If you wish to volunteer in any of the above positions please contact:
