The athletic department has launched ‘Cats Care, a program that, with assistance from ticket purchasers, will help bring groups from charitable organizations to UNH athletic events.
The program is dedicated to demonstrating leadership through community service using the popularity and visibility of teams, players, and coaches. Wildcat teams and players understand the responsibility they have to giving back to the communities that support them. The Wildcat family is motivated by the unique opportunity to make a significant difference.
If fans donate an additional $2 when buying individual game tickets, UNH will give a full priced general admission ticket to groups from selected charitable organizations. These groups will be UNH’s special guests at designated games and recognized as the Wildcat group of the day.
‘Cats Care charities include:
Chase Home for Children
Dover Children’s Home
Seacoast Cancer Center
Malley Boys Farm
St. Charles Orphanage
My Friend's Place
Big Brothers, Big Sisters
VA Medical Center
