Detroit Red Wings and Kroger Team Up to Support Motor City Veterans Hockey

Motor City Veterans President Mike Palmer sat down with Bally Sports Detroit and Trevor Thompson to discuss how Detroit Red Wings and Kroger are helping to support our program and get Metro Detroit Veterans on the ice.

The Red Wings Foundation and Kroger recently teamed up to support Motor City Veterans Hockey and bring awareness to our program's mission and activities. This support included hosting players for the Detroit Red Wings Military Appreciation Game and donating proceeds from their Military Appreciation auction to the MCVHA! Thank you to the Detroit Red Wings and Kroger for the support!
