VJW Teams Collect Toys for Tots
vjw_95elites.jpgMany VJW teams have been busy this holiday season... both on and off the ice! As a way of giving back to the local community, the Warriors have been donating their time and resources to raising money for local charities in need.

The '95 Selects and '95 Elites celebrated the holiday season by collecting and donating toys for the Toys for Tots organization, which serves children from across the state. The toys collected by the young players will be distributed to the kids of Lawrence. This year marks the fourth year in a row that the '95 Elites organized this fundraiser.

"It is always gratifying to see our players and families dedicate their time during this busy season to giving back," noted Fred Devereaux, the VJW director of player development. "Our goal as a program is to not only develop strong players, but to nurture a sense of community and responsibility."

Another team that also gave back was the VJW Mite Select team. Paul Sacco's young squad (see photo below) celebrated the holiday season by collecting and donating toys for the Toys for Tots organization, which serves children from across the state.

These three squads join the '97 VJW Select team, which just recently raised more than \$1,200 for the Susan G Komen for the Cure.

Congratulations to all of these players for a job well done.
