The Pittsburgh Penguins are setting a good example on how, in the wake of tragedy, actions speak louder than words. Much respect.
“The team announced on Sunday that it would hold a blood drive on Monday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and would cancel its annual Halloween-themed festivities at Tuesday’s game, instead opting to hold a collection to benefit the victims of the shooting.
The team’s charitable arm, the Penguins Foundation, will also make two donations of $25,000 to support the victims of Saturday’s attack, the team announced Sunday afternoon.
One payment will go toward the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, while the other will establish a fund to benefit the four police officers wounded in the shooting.”
That’s how you support a community in a time of tragedy: Less talk, more action. Good on them.
