WASHINGTON, D.C. – Washington Capitals’ wives and girlfriends visited Children’s National Medical Center on Tuesday, April 6, and made spring-themed arts and crafts with patients in the hospital’s atrium. This was the second visit the Capitals made to Children’s National Medical Center this season, as several Caps players played video games with the patients on March 1.
Angela Corvo, Kari Erskine, Rachel Fehr, Deanne Harefah, Mackenzie Keeley, Aimee Laing, Erin Morrison and Diondra Steckel made crowns, door hangers, headbands and spring themed arts and crafts with the patients.
“If we can take the kids’ minds off of being in the hospital just for a little bit of the day then we have done our job,” said Rachel Fehr, wife of Caps forward Eric Fehr.
