WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williams men’s ice hockey team is soliciting donations from individuals and families in the Williams community, as well as local businesses, to support the Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund (MSLF).

As part of the "Goals to Assist the Children of Fallen Soldiers," effort, the team is asking people to pledge a donation for every goal the team scores at home this season.

At the end of the season, the players will collect the donations and deliver 100 percent of the money to MSLF to support the college education of the children of Massachusetts soldiers who have lost their lives serving the country.

To date, the Ephs have already secured 25 donor pledges amounting to nearly $100 per goal. The Ephs have set a team goal of raising $5,000 this season. The Ephs will continue to accept donations throughout the season.

Those who would like to support "Goals to Assist" can contact Zach Miller at 10zcm@williams.edu.

Local business supporters include Where’d You Get That?!, Ephporium, Goff’s, Papa Charlie’s, Papyri Books and TGL Photos.
