FALCONS ANNOUNCE DETAILS OF DEC. 30 WHITE SOCK DRIVE
Springfield, Mass. - The Springfield Falcons, AHL affiliate of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, will hold a white sock drive at the MassMutual Center to benefit Friends of the Homeless when they play host to the Norfolk Admirals on Sunday, Dec. 30, with a special start time that evening of 5:00 p.m.
Fans are asked to bring new and packaged white socks to this event to donate to the male guests of Friends of the Homeless, the largest adult emergency shelter in Western Mass. Friends of the Homeless will accept the donations at a table in the concourse behind section 1 during the game. Started in 1988, Friends of the Homeless provides shelter for approximately 1,200 non-violent people annually and works to find permanent housing solutions for its guests. The Falcons' partnership with Friends of the Homeless was featured recently on TheAHL.com, in an article accessible by clicking here.

Immediately following the contest, the Falcons will hold a free postgame skate on the MassMutual Center ice. Fans are encouraged to register to participate during the game at the F.L. Roberts Golden Nozzle Fan Relations Center and must bring their own skates.
