Paying It Forward


Debra Kasprick, HyLife Office Manager
has selected her local hockey team as the recipients of a $1,000 HyLife donation.

Growing up in the small community of Birnie, Manitoba, Debra understands firsthand the big difference it makes to give back.

“Sometimes, things don’t happen if people don’t volunteer. We’ve seen it here and in other committees. We run the risk of no longer have fairs and other community events because we don’t have volunteers to support them. Volunteering your time is important to keep things going,” said Debra Kasprick, HyLife Office Manager.

She has spent a significant amount of time rink side, so it was second nature for Debra to support something close to her heart.

“I got into the Titans because I love hockey. My kids all played the sport, we are a hockey family. I billeted at first, then I got on the board and continued with it. I’ve been involved with the organization for over ten years now.”

“The Neepawa Titans are huge for the community, and we want them to do well. What makes them stand out is what they do for the community. They volunteer for all kinds of things. Which I think is great.

It’s good for them as young men – to give back to communities, even though, to a lot of them, this is not their home community.

When they’re in the schools, the younger kids aspire to be like the players, and the older community members at care homes enjoy their visits.”

Ken Pearson, Head Coach/General Manager, Neepawa Titans, values the ongoing support from HyLife.

“We appreciate all that HyLife does for our team. We have strong relationships, and it is all about community. We all want to make sure our communities are successful, healthy, and fun places to live,” shares Ken Pearson, Head Coach/General Manager, Neepawa Titans
