The Pittsburgh Penguins will hold a collection to support the Penn Hills Police Fallen Heroes Fund before Thursday’s game with the Philadelphia Flyers at Mellon Arena.
On Dec. 6, Penn Hills Police Officer Michael Crawshaw was killed in the line of duty while responding to a disturbance call. The Penn Hills Police created the fund to honor the memory of Officer Crawshaw by providing financial aid for a graduating Penn Hills High School student majoring in social work or psychology, and to provide funding for other non-profit associations.
Penn Hills Police Officers, Penguins employees and members of the Penguins Booster Club will be collecting at the gates before Thursday’s 7:30 p.m. game. All money collected will go directly to the Fallen Heroes Fund.
The Penn Hills Police also have created a website, www.pennhillspolicefallenheroesfund.org
, where they will be selling memorial t-shirts, stickers and wrist bands to support the cause.
