Skate Exchange

The skate exchange program is for first timers or someone in need of a pair of ice skates that fit comfortably. If you have skates that you no longer need or fit, please consider donating them to the program to help ones in need.  We are looking for dontations of NEW helmets.  This program is very popular.  Please give someone a change to begin to skate or continue to enjoy this sport.  For more information call South East Grey Community Health Centre at 519.986.2222.
