About Hockey Helps the Homeless:

Founded in 2000, Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHH) brings hockey pros and fans together in hockey tournaments to raise money for local homeless shelters and services. Its goal is to end homelessness in communities across Canada.

Between 2016 and 2017, HHH hosted tournaments in Barrie, Montreal, Toronto, London, Edmonton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Calgary, Markham, and Vancouver. It also hosted tournaments for university students at 4 Ontario universities and colleges: Queen's University,  Durham College, University of Ontario Institute of Technology, and Western University. 

By registering as a player or a team, donors play a minimum of 3 games with 2 retired NHL or Olympic pros on their team. Players can register in the competitive, recreational or 50-plus tournaments depending on their skill level and desired intensity of play. Some of the pros participating in the 2017 tournament include NHL alumni Wendel Clark, Gilbert Dionne, and Brad May. Olympians participating include Meaghan Mikkelson, Natalie Spooner and Erin Ambrose.

In 2016 Hockey Helps the Homeless made grants to 44 homeless charities including $260k to Eva's in Toronto, and $220k to 360 Kids in Markham. HHH ensures that funds raised in a community are spent in the same community. Hockey Helps the Homeless grants to many of the best known Canadian homeless charities.
