Joining From Top Shelf to Food Shelf

From Top Shelf to Food Shelf is an initiative founded by Donna Carpenter, the creator of Runnin’ with the Dogs, consisting of hockey-based charitable contributions to local food pantries.

Every year at Christmastime (and other times sporadically) I look for charities and other causes to give money to for the holidays. If you need some ideas, I’ve donated previously to:

This year I will be adding to the list to support From Top Shelf to Food Shelf. Finding an applicable charity was difficult as this year I pledged to include LGBTQ charities in red states, to help the most vulnerable communities in the places where they are most at-risk.

That would seem to provide zero applicable charities as my primary teams (the Buffalo Beauts and Clarkson Golden Knights) both play in New York and I live in Washington state. However, as someone who covers NCAA Women’s hockey as a whole, I am a fan of the game and thus of every team.  (Yes, even the WCHA teams.)

Thus I will be happy to donate to the Shepherd Wellness Community of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on behalf of the Robert Morris Colonials Women’s Hockey team of Moon, Pennsylvania.

The Shepherd Wellness Community is devoted to helping those affected with HIV/AIDS. For the past 29 (and counting) years the SWC has served Wellness Dinners to to people living with HIV/AIDS and their loved ones.

I will donate $1 for every Robert Morris Women’s Hockey regular season win, $3 for a CHA semifinals win, and $5 for a CHA Tournament Championship and NCAA appearance.

I will also make the following jokes:

“She’s Gebhard to stop.”

“She’s in a Lague of her own.”

“Jessica Goalzzola”

And many others.
