February 20, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Rochester Americans News Release

(Rochester, NY) - Several Rochester Americans players will spend Thursday afternoon delivering coffee and donuts to Rochester area firehouses and police stations. The visits to local law enforcement agencies will be a prelude to the team's annual "Hometown Heroes Night," presented by Advantage Federal Credit Union, on Saturday, Feb. 23 when the Amerks host the Belleville Senators at 7:05 p.m. at The Blue Cross Arena.

This marks the third straight year Amerks players will deliver coffee and donuts as a way of thanking Rochester's first responders.

Beginning at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, players will visit the Allen Street Firehouse (272 Allen St.) before stopping by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office Jail Bureau (130 Plymouth Ave. South) at 2:30 p.m. From there, a third group of Amerks will visit the Clinton patrol facility of the Rochester Police Department (630 North Clinton Ave.) in downtown Rochester at 3:00 p.m.

On Saturday, Feb. 23, the Amerks are honoring all first responders such as police officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical technicians, as well as military members and veterans. Prior to the Amerks-Senators matchup that night, the Rochester Police Department will face-off against members of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office Jail Bureau in an exhibition hockey game starting at 4:00 p.m.

As part of the night, the Amerks are offering all Hometown Heroes and military personnel one complimentary ticket to their game against the Senators with additional tickets for family and friends available for as low as just $12. Those interested in taking advantage of the offer can do so by visiting Hometown Heroes or their families can also use that link to submit a photo to be used during an in-game tribute on the video board.
