Skates For Kids
Our 2015/16 application period has ended. Check back in May of 2016 for our 2016/17 application!
PenFinancial Credit Union's Skates for Kids Program was launched in the summer of 2009, in partnership with local businesses and service organizations, to assist Niagara schools in developing a school wide skating program. Since its inception, Skates for Kids has collected, cleaned, sharpened and delivered over 3,000 pairs of gently used skates and over 1,200 new helmets to schools in the Niagara Region. In addition to skates, PenFinancial has also organized free skate days for all sponsored schools including complimentary bussing, refreshments and volunteers to help deserving children hit the ice!
The Skates for Kids Program is made possible due to the support of our many partners and sponsors.
