On Wednesday, Nov. 22, the Carolina Hurricanes delivered 450 turkeys to area families ahead of the coming Thanksgiving holiday. Hurricanes alumni Erik Cole and Shane Willis were on hand at Helping Hand Mission in Raleigh to join team staff members in distributing the turkeys.

This marks the seventh year of the Hurricanes' Thanksgiving partnership with Helping Hand Mission. Contributions for the turkeys came from the Hurricanes' Tickets for Turkeys campaign, through which a portion of every ticket sold went toward the purchase of turkeys. 

Below is a recap (in photos!) of the day.
