Pens Support "Hockey for Huggies" Wednesday to Help Moms and Babies in Need
/ Pittsburgh Penguins
The Pittsburgh Penguins are teaming up with the National Hockey League and Huggies in the “Hockey for Huggies” program to help moms and babies in need – and they’ll get a big assist from Giant Eagle and Kimberly Clark Wednesday night at CONSOL Energy Center.
At Wednesday’s game against San Jose, the Penguins are asking fans to bring an unopened package of diapers or make monetary donations for the purchase of new diapers as part of this unique, league-wide partnership.
Giant Eagle and Kimberly Clark will match all diaper donations made Wednesday night.
Research shows that 1 in 3 American mothers struggle with diaper need and often have to cut back on other basics to provide diapers for their babies.
The Penguins and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will be collecting the diapers as fans enter CONSOL Energy Center. One of the Food Bank’s missions is to distribute diapers to local families in need. Monetary donations may be made at the Huggies concourse booth near section 110. Fans who participate that night will be eligible to win prizes.
During the month of February, fans also may text the name of their favorite team (e.g. “Pittsburgh,” “Penguins” or “Pens”) to 501501 to donate $5 and help diaper babies in their communities. For more information, please visit nhl.com/huggies or EveryLittleBottom.com.
