The NHL plays a part in many organizations and causes in the United States and abroad. From river clean-up and water sustainability to providing a helping hand. The league also encourages many of it’s players, owners and employees to help local communities through charity.
David Backes and his wife Kelly are active in the St. Louis community and frequently take on projects. One such project is ‘David’s Dogs’ and ‘Kelly’s Kats’. This program helps neglected dogs and cats find a good home. David and Kelly are also on the Board of Directors and help promote and participate in various fundraisers.
The NHL message is for everyone to get involved:
