The Vermont men’s hockey team will be hosting “Skate with the Cats” on Sunday, Dec. 16 from 4-5 pm at Gutterson Fieldhouse. The event is free and open to fans of all ages. Fans can put on their skates in the warming hut located through the north entrance.
As part of the “Rally for Warmth” drive sponsored by the UPS Store in Essex, fans are encouraged to bring new or handmade hats, mittens, gloves, and scarves to donate to the collection. All of the items will be donated to local community members in need this winter season. Collection tables will be set up in the warming hut and in the main lobby of Gutterson Fieldhouse.
“Our players, coaches, and staff members are looking forward to spending time with our fans during Skate with the Cats,” said head coach Kevin Sneddon. “This an opportunity for our program to thank our loyal fans, celebrate the holiday season, and join together with our valued sponsor The UPS Store to collect warm clothing for those in need.”
