EYHBC Wants You… To take Advantage of Your Military Service!The Everett Youth Hockey Booster Club (EYHBC) is honored to announce the awarding of SIX $1,500 Individual Grants from the Defending The Blue Line foundation. Defending The Blue Line actively works to ensure that children of military members are afforded every opportunity to participate in the game of hockey. They provide equipment, hockey camps, NHL Tickets, and grants for association fees based on status and rank of military parent(s). All military branches are included and the following military statuses are eligible to apply to EYHBC to receive one of six grants available: Family of KIA, Combat Wounded, Currently Deployed, Currently Serving, and Veterans (Honorably discharged Veterans who have deployed to a combat zone as defined by the DOD or VA). EYHBC will award one grant each month for a six month period. Should more than one family apply in a given month, the EYHBC Board will vote on which family will receive the grant. Families that are not awarded the grant may then reapply for the next month until all six grants have been awarded. The grant money must be used for related hockey expenses and the funds will be controlled within the EYHBC's restricted account to ensure they are properly utilized in direct support of Defending The Blue Line's mission.
These grants for $1500 will have a tremendous impact for those families that have a loved one that is currently serving or has honorably served our country in a combat zone. We salute our veterans and are extremely pleased to have been selected by the Defending The Blue Line foundation to award these grants on their behalf.
