Mandog Mission Statement: To honor & support firefighters who keep our community safe with uplifting experiences through hockey.
Brandon Manning was inspired to start this charity effort by his dad, who was a firefighter in his hometown while Brandon was growing up and has been for 25 years. Having "grown up" in the fire hall and its surrounding community through his father, Brandon feels especially passionate and connected to this cause - and ultimately, wanted to bring that to Chicago and help local firefighters here.
"We all know firefighters as pillars in our community who keep us safe. Locally, the Chicago Fire Department has many members, and the Mandog Project is a way for us all to show our support for their service."
Show your support for Chicago-area firefighters by purchasing an item from the new Mandog apparel line, a charity initiative from Blackhawks defenseman Brandon Manning (#23). All proceeds will benefit the firefighter community across Chicagoland.
These items are available now at the Blackhawks Store and Madhouse Team Store. To place an order by phone, please call the Blackhawks Store at 312-759-0079.
