SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) – Taylor Kincaid, a Mishawaka High School junior and goaltender for the Adams hockey team. Set up a donation drive for St. Margaret’s House, a shelter that helps improve the lives of women and children in the area.
The idea for the event came from an internet connection Taylor spotted at another hockey league in Indianapolis. Taylor went to see her mother, who is the manager of Adams’ hockey team. Together, they helped set up Scarves for St. Marg.
St. Margaret’s was chosen by Taylor because of the help it brings to the community, particularly their work with women and children in need. They approached the shelter and asked what items they needed most.
After receiving the list, the two set about promoting the event through Facebook and radio.
The drop off was this Saturday from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at the Ice Box. With hundreds of donated hats, socks, gloves and other essential items.
“I would like to say thank you to everyone who came and donated. It completely exceeded my expectations and Taylor’s expectations,” said Aimee Petrie, event organizer and Taylor’s mom. “At one point I even got a little emotional when I couldn’t keep up with everything that was coming in.”
Both hope to make Scarves for St. Mark’s an annual event in the community.
