In an effort to enhance the impact of Royal Steele’s donation to a charity supporting people with disabilities, I have designated a new organization to donate to for 2009. Royal Steele is excited to be donating to the Philadelphia PowerPlay. Start at The Stores @ Royal Steele when shopping online and to go to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Buy.com, Staples, and many other sites to shop as usual at no additional charge to help us build our donation.
The Philadelphia PowerPlay is a power wheelchair floor hockey team based in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. The mission of the team, founded by team member and manager Pat Hilferty, is to provide a community based competitive athletic experience for people who use power wheelchairs in their daily lives. To learn more about the team, check out their website at www.philadelphiapowerplay.com.
This is an exciting opportunity for me to put the website behind a local effort. I played wheelchair hockey as a kid, and it was some of the most fun my friends and I ever had. It is great to see the level Pat has brought it to. It’s especially gratifying to see it based in Delaware County for the Philadelphia area - right where I played.
While their is no legal agreement, the PowerPlay and Royal Steele will be working together to make this a mutually beneficial arrangement. Donations will simply be made based on profits from the Stores @ Royal Steele to the PowerPlay.
