In addition to creating good hockey players, PAL Hockey strives to help our players become good citizens. Toward that end our organization has all of our teams select a community service project for all their players to participate in. Through doing for others, our players learn valuable life lessons that will serve them well in their years to come. See below for a description of each team's project for the 2014-2015 season as well as links to pictures.
