Donations will also be accepted at the Dec. 5 game between Canada's National Women's Team and Team USA. Fans who are unable to attend those games are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped gift or cash donation to Jets Gear locations (St.Vital, Polo Park, Kildonan Place, Bell MTS Place, and Bell MTS Iceplex) or to select Wawanesa Insurance broker partners (Arthur J.
