NASHUA – Calling all hockey players for the All Day Power Play, as the 24-hour benefit for the Nashua Children’s Home is still signing up players and sponsors.

Organizer Dave Walsh is asking for people interested in joining the event at the Conway Arena to get in touch.

“Heading into our 10th year, we are in great need of players and sponsors to help make this year as successful as past years,” Walsh said this week.

The All Day Power Play has the players fundraise and then take part in games from 9 a.m. Saturday through 9 a.m. Sunday. The event is expected to raise $20,000 for the Nashua Children’s Home this year, bringing the lifetime total to $250,000.

Walsh said 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Nashua Children’s Home, a facility committed to the care, welfare and educational achievement of children and youths in its residential and educational programs, and the successful transition to adult living of young men and women in its transitional living program.

The home provides care and stability to boys and girls unable to remain with their families, special education services for students who haven’t been successful in public school settings, and supportive housing for youths who have “aged out” of care.
