(Howell, NJ) – The New Jersey Junior Titans Hockey Club is making a conscious effort this season to get our players more involved in the local community and helping to teach the value of volunteering for a good cause.
For the upcoming season, the Titans organization has decided to make community service a requirement throughout our organization. Starting at the top of our organization with the Juniors and Midgets, the Titans will be involved in various community service outreach programs in the area.
For the upcoming 2011-12 season there will be three mandatory community service initiatives. The first community service event of the year that the Titans participated in was the "Eden Autism 5K Run", which benefited Eden Autism Services on July 17th at Princeton, NJ. Eden Autism Services is a Non-profit organization that benefits children and adults with Autism as well as their families. The Titans are proud of their involvement with Eden Autism Services and look forward to contributing to other great causes over the course of the year. Plans are underway for the remaining two initiatives.
The goal of these community programs is to teach our Titan players that they need to “give back” to others less fortunate or in need to show their appreciation and demonstrate that they can be leaders not only on the ice but in the community.
