Players to Make Holiday Community Visits Tuesday

RALEIGH, NC — Jon Chase, Director of Community Relations and Promotions for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the entire Hurricanes roster will participate in a day of community appearances Tuesday, Dec. 7.

Four groups of players will visit patients at Rex Hospital (1 p.m.), WakeMed Hospital (1 p.m.), North Carolina Children’s Hospital (1:30 p.m.) and Duke Children’s Hospital (2 p.m.) on Tuesday. Players will visit, take photos, sign autographs and distribute Hurricanes and NHL items to children.

At 4 p.m., four Hurricanes players will join four children selected by PLM Families Together and Wake County Human Services at Target in the North Hills shopping center. Each player will be paired with a child to help with holiday shopping. Each player/child pair will receive a $250 Target gift card, courtesy of the Carolina Hurricanes, to help buy holiday gifts for the children’s families.

Also on Tuesday, a group of six Hurricanes players will visit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina from 1:15 p.m.-2:15 p.m. The players will assist Food Bank and BeActive NC staff in packing backpacks for the Food Bank’s BackPack program, and also will help promote the Pound For Pound Challenge. For each pound participants pledge to lose as part of the Pound For Pound Challenge, Feeding America receives 14 cents – enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank. A television segment filmed on Tuesday has a chance to appear in an upcoming episode of The Biggest Loser, and will be available on the Pound For Pound Challenge website.
