The Long Island Warriors organization is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization that helps both active and retired military and their families. On Dec. 9 last year, members of the Warriors were at the Long Island Children’s Museum to teach children about hockey with a “sock hockey” clinic. The museum had the “snowflake skating rink” exhibit open through Jan. 7. The one-day hockey clinic saw the Warriors interacting with and teaching the youth about hockey.
Event organizer Jeremy Feldman spoke about his love for hockey and growing the game with the youth on Long Island. The Long Island Children’s Museum collaborated with the Warriors to do a U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots collection with the clinic as well. Employee June Cunha discussed what it meant to spread holiday joy through donation.
Although the clinic was only on Dec. 9, members of the Warriors often hold events across Long Island. For more information on the group’s mission and upcoming events, visit https://www.liwarriorshockey.org
