Generals Visit Hurley Medical Center
FLINT, MI - A handful of the Flint Generals players, the Generals staff, and General Rally will be at Hurley Medical Center this afternoon at 2pm to deliver all of the Teddy Bears fans donated at Sunday's game against Quad City.
The Generals brought back the fan favorite Teddy Bear Toss yesterday and the Flint community responded by littering the ice with Teddy Bears of all sizes in the first period when the Gens scored their first goal.
The Teddy Bear Toss is an annual event in hockey arenas across North America around this time of year with the goal of bringing the joys of the holiday season to children in the pediatric units in area hospitals.
When asked about visiting Hurley Hospital, General Manager Peter South said, "We are more than happy to help out in any way possible."
The commitment South mentioned, has shown. Since the start of December, the Generals have run a Coats for Kids promotion, a Toys for Tots Drive this past Friday, the Teddy Bear Toss yesterday and kick off a food drive with Carriage Town Ministries this Tuesday, players participated in the annual Red Kettle bell ringing with the Salvation Army, and last week a couple of players spent a couple of hours in the cold helping the Salvation Army with their food distribution.
The food drive kicks off this Tuesday, Dec. 22nd when the Generals host the Port Huron IceHawks and will run through January 3rd.
