Holiday Shopping Spree
Ducks players serve as holiday helpers during the holiday season as part
of the annual Shopping Spree, which provides students from The Wooden
Floor - a nonprofit organization serving low-income Santa Ana youth - the
unique and fun opportunity to load up their shopping carts with necessities
and gifts for their families in celebration of the holiday season. Ducks players,
joined by the Lady Ducks, assist The Wooden Floor students as they shop
for new clothes, toys and other essentials as a special holiday treat, all
underwritten by the Anaheim Ducks and Anaheim Ducks players.
Each season, Ducks staff, season ticket holders and corporate partners
of the Anaheim Ducks and Honda Center team up to volunteer for a day of
beautification projects at local S.C.O.R.E. elementary schools. From installing
a street hockey rink, painting murals and planting trees, the Power PLAY! is
a great day for volunteers to give back to the community. Five rinks (and
counting) have been gifted to local schools to help their S.C.O.R.E. programs
continue to grow.
The Ducks, Honda Center and THE RINKS employees share the Anaheim
Ducks commitment to the community throughout the year and are actively
engaged in assisting the community through volunteer service. Ducks,
Honda Center and THE RINKS staff have participated in activities such as iceskating
parties with Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim, assisting The Friendly
Center and their local food pantry, blood drives for the American Red Cross,
clothing drives for Goodwill of Orange County, back-to-school backpack
assembling with Share Our Selves and many more.

The Anaheim Ducks Wives and Significant Others group, the Lady
Ducks, are dedicated to assisting the local Southern California community
94 Anaheim Ducks 2018–19 Official Yearbok

the Lady Ducks have also assisted in game-night activities including the

local animal shelter and the NHL Hockey Fights Cancer awareness night

Anaheim Ducks Alumni Association
The Anaheim Ducks Alumni Association is composed of a group of former
Ducks players who are actively involved in the Anaheim Ducks community
initiatives. Ducks Alumni members have participated in charitable events
such as the San Manuel Rivalry Hold’em Poker Challenge, Ducks Alumni
charity hockey games, serving as sous chefs at Dux in Tux and THE RINKS
Holiday Skate. The alumni are an enthusiastic group, looking to contribute to
the community goals of the organization and provide a great way for fans to
interact with some of their favorite Ducks of the past.
