The RINKS Holiday Toy Drive and Holiday Skate
The Anaheim Ducks and The Rinks will be hosting a Holiday Toy Drive Skate Party on Wednesday, December 14th from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at The Rinks - Anaheim ICE.

Each season, the staff, Season Ticket Holders and corporate partners of the Anaheim Ducks and Honda Center team up to volunteer for a day of beautification projects at local S.C.O.R.E. elementary schools. From installing a street hockey rink, painting murals and planting trees, the Power PLAY! is a great day for the volunteers to give back to the community.
