Thanks for joining the NYCGHA in supporting our LGBTQ+ community during the COVID-19 crisis. We cannot express how grateful we are to have such a caring hockey family, and hope you are able to acknowledge Pride Month in whatever way you can.
As a reminder, your donations will be matched by us (up to a total of $1,000), but we encourage you to give only if you can and at a level you feel comfortable donating.
The total amount raised will be split evenly between:
Boxers NYC Food Pantry: As you may be aware, Boxers has been a generous sponsor of many NYCGHA events over the years, including the Chelsea Challenge. Staff members have set up a food pantry operating from Boxers Washington Heights serving residents in that neighborhood, which has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
Callen-Lorde Community Health Center: Callen-Lorde Community Health Center provides healthcare and other associated services targeted to New York's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. During the COVID-19 crisis, they’ve had staffing shortages and need critical funds to hire additional caregivers.
We will accept donations to this fund through 11:59 p.m. on Pride Sunday, June 28.
Thank You on behalf of the NYCGHA Board
