FALCONS PLAYERS MAKE DONATION TO HOMELESS SHELTER
Springfield, Mass. - Springfield Falcons players Nick Holden and Andrew Joudrey delivered sweatshirts, socks, winter gloves, toiletries, crossword puzzles, and other items for the male clients of Friends of the Homeless at 755 Worthington St. on Thursday afternoon.
The items were purchased through cash contributions by all Falcons players as part of a new partnership between the hockey club and Friends of the Homeless, the largest emergency shelter for non-violent adults in Western Mass. The partnership was recently featured in an article on TheAHL.com, available by clicking here.
The Falcons will also 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. In addition to bringing winter necessities to Friends of the Homeless on Thursday, Holden and Joudrey also gave 25 tickets to the Dec. 30 game to Friends of the Homeless on behalf of the Falcons Friends Program.
Fans are asked to bring new and packaged white socks to this event to donate to Friends of the Homeless' guests. Friends of the Homeless will accept the donations at a table in the concourse behind section 1 during the game.
