MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - The Hockey Day Minnesota Mankato committee is asking for the public’s help.

They need volunteers to go down to Blakeslee Stadium to shovel snow off of RW Carlstrom Rink in preparation for Hockey Day Minnesota, which kicks off Sunday with the Mankato Area Hockey Association hitting the ice.

Organizers are simply asking for people to show up at the rink and get involved in any way they can.

The committee is asking for volunteers to come to Minnesota State University, Mankato and park in lot 20 before walking over to the rink to get to work.

The sun has set on our first full day of volunteer shifts + set up as we prepare to open the gates on Sunday. Thank you...

”We have had an amazing crew so far today, we have had people on the ice since 7 a.m., 20+ people just helping with shoveling and clearing the ice. If you have any free time, please come out to the rink,” said Lindsey Botker, a member of the Hockey Day Minnesota Mankato Events and Logistics Committee.

They will be needing volunteers until the snow slows down or comes to a complete stop.
