(DANBURY, CT) - The Danbury Mad Hatters of the Eastern Professional Hockey League (EPHL) have announced that they will be running a special promotion to help Danbury's needy.

The Mad Hatters' Tough Guys are challenging all of their fans to bring a new pair of gloves or mittens, or winter hats for both kids and adults to their home game against the Jersey Rockhoppers on January 4, 2009 and drop them at the entrance. All winter items will be collected and given to Danbury's shelters to help those in need brave the cold this winter.

"With winter already upon us, and temperatures dropping, we felt it was important to help out our community by collecting these items and giving them to the people who need them the most," Business General Manager Eric Horn said. "During this time of the year, we are always thankful for what we have, but we want to remember those who don't have the same luxuries we do, and as an organization this is the least we can do."
