Innovative Office Solutions is the proud sponsor of the Minnesota Wild Charity of the Month program for the third consecutive year. This program brings exposure to Minnesota charities, once per month throughout the NHL season.

The September Charity of the Month is Hope, Inc.

In September 2006, HOPE implemented a year-round sports and recreation program for children and young adults ages 2-23 who have mobility challenges. Hope, Inc. provides extra adaptive sports equipment so that siblings, parents and friends can participate seated and play too!

Some of their goals include: increase physical fitness, self-esteem and self-confidence.  They help teach communication, social skills, sportsmanship and teamwork in a fun, energetic and encouraging environment.

Some of the weekly activities include:

•              Sled hockey (December-February)
