El Paso Rhinos to partner with Boys and Girls Club through ‘Skate Mates’

Over the past ten years, the El Paso Rhinos have developed a school mentorship program that has become known as the “Skate Mates Educational Program.”

To expand community education efforts this season, Skate Mates will now include the Boys and Girls Club after-school program.

Rhinos Head Coach Cory Herman explains why Skate Mates has become such a significant part of the Rhinos’ philanthropic initiatives.

“It’s important for children to have mentors so they have someone to look up to and can develop a strong sense of who they want to become. Mentoring is also good for our players because it reminds them that they are held to a high standard and have a responsibility to
give back to the community that has been so good to our organization.”

Boys and Girls Clubs of El Paso’s Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Tomasheski, also expressed his enthusiasm for the new working relationship.

“We are excited about our amazing partnership with the Rhinos. Athletes are a great example for kids. Their drive, determination, and discipline are qualities that our children can take and apply to their everyday lives.”

The Rhinos will ‘drop the puck’ on the new partnership with the Boys and Girls Club by visiting the main location at 801 South Florence Street this week.

Over the next six months, the players will regularly visit five schools and the Boys and Girls Club. They will become mentors that work closely with students on educational tasks and encourage them to excel outside the classroom.

Chihuahuas, EPFD & Operation Santa partner for 2015 Paws for Presents Toy Drive

The El Paso Chihuahuas and the El Paso Fire Department present “Paws for Presents” for the second year, a holiday toy drive assisting Operation Santa, a Fort Bliss-based charity.

The drive begins  Thursday, November 19th and continues through Saturday, December 19th. The Chihuahuas and Fire Department request all gifts be new and not gift wrapped for children up to the age of 13.  The video above is from the 2014 Paws for Presents.

Monetary donations are also welcomed with checks made payable to Operation Santa.

Operation Santa, in its 58th season, distributes toys and bicycles to military families, the Boys and Girls Club of El Paso and clinics in Juarez, Mexico. The non-profit, located on Fort Bliss, collected and distributed 10,000 toys and bikes in 2014.

“It’s a privilege for the Chihuahuas to team up with our local fire department and Operation Santa to provide gifts for kids this time of year,” said Brad Taylor, El Paso Chihuahuas general manager.
