SUPERIOR, WI. -- As the hockey and holiday seasons are both right around the corner, a make and take fundraiser was held in Superior Sunday to benefit the Proctor and Twig hockey associations.

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

As people are getting into the holiday spirit, the Duluth Flower farm in Superior hosted an open house event, benefiting local hockey programs.

"A lot of hockey moms are coming down here and grabbing these greens and they know the proceeds will go to keep these kids active and keep them playing for as long as possible," said Brook Hoffbauer, owner of the Duluth Flower Farm.

On Sunday, people were able to make and take a holiday wreath, porch pot, or Thanksgiving centerpiece.

And with players and parents juggling shifting school models, the event offered a moment of relaxation and holiday normalcy.

"It's interesting to see kids getting involved and using nature-inspired products to add beauty to a time that needs a lot of beauty," said Hoffbauer.

Team leaders say the pandemic has put an extra financial strain on families so fundraisers like these make an even bigger impact.

"We are trying to be as creative as possible trying to support these fundraisers that are happening in our town and keeping these programs going and keeping our kids active and keeping them involved in as much as possible because they are getting a lot of opportunities sort of taken from them," said Hoffbauer.

Raising money so kids can keep lacing up, and skate through another hockey season.
