Tomahawks Help with Community Event, Visit Local Schools

Colin Price, Pavel Kharin, and Matthew Doyle stopped by the Cover Hill Firehall's Spaghetti Dinner this past Sunday, January 19th, to help serve meals to attendees.

Players visited the Somerset Boys and Girls Club yesterday, helping the kids with homework and playing some hockey with them afterwards.

Today, they will be visiting the Allegheny Unlimited Care Providers to spend the day enjoying fun activities with the clients. They will also be attending the first Little Pens session of this round of the program, helping the children learn all the skills needed to be a hockey player. What better way to learn than by having their real life heroes there to help them out on the ice!

Tomorrow, players will head to Turkeyfoot Valley School District as part of the team's "Read to Succeed" program. They'll also be teaching the kids about H.A.W.K.S: healthy choices, active lifestyles, wise decisions, kindness, and sending a message.
