The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) is a non-profit organization created to support the CAIC, while contributing to avalanche awareness and education throughout the State of Colorado.
KSE hosts bi-annual days of service by providing employees with volunteer opportunities in the Denver community. Employees donate time to a variety of local organizations, such as food banks, animal shelters and hospitals. If you would like your non-profit organization to receive KSE volunteers for the next Day of Service, register below.
During the Avalanche regular season, private on-ice hockey clinics are held with local youth hockey associations. These private clinics are one-hour sessions, led by an Avalanche player, coach or alumnus that focus on the fundamentals of ice hockey.
The Colorado Avalanche offers youth hockey associations an opportunity to sell game programs at each Avalanche home game. The participating group keeps 100 percent of proceeds, which can be used at your discretion to support your association. Groups have recently raised over $300,000 to support their individual programs.
- Because of limited number of games available it is the responsibility of each association to select volunteers and determine how funds will be used to best support your association.
- Each chosen association will be required to provide at least 15 volunteers for program sales.
- Each participating group keeps 100 percent of proceeds; no game tickets will be provided.
