The Falcons Mite Bronze ice-hockey team out of Highland Park and the Maulers Mite ice-hockey team out of Gurnee have partnered to collect items in support of Lake County charitable organizations at their regular season games.

The two Mite teams compete in the Northern Illinois Hockey League at the Silver B level and will play each other again on Jan. 6 at Lake Forest Academy and Feb. 1 at Rink Side Sports in Gurnee.

At their first game, played earlier this month at Rink Side, the teams collected items for PADS Lake County, whose “Wish List” can be found on the PADS Web site padslakecounty.org.

PADS Lake County has been providing immediate and critical services to homeless adults and children in Lake County for more than 35 years.

PADS is a non-restrictive emergency shelter system that serves all the homeless throughout Lake County and is the only program in Lake County that provides emergency shelter in the summer months, enables homeless families to stay together, provides shelter for single parents with children, and provides shelter for homeless individuals with severe mental illnesses and/or substance abuse issues.

The collection for PADS on was an overwhelming success, with many food, paper goods, cleaning products, and clothing items donated to the main PADS site in North Chicago.
