The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation announced today that it is selling limited-edition "Stronger Than Hate" patches, identical to those worn by Penguins players during their October 30 game against the New York Islanders at PPG Paints Arena.
All proceeds from the sale of patches will go to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to benefit victims and families of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill. The cost of each patch is $20.
Patches are available for order at the following link: https://pittsburghpenguinsfoundation.org/product/stronger-than-hate-patch/
The Penguins Foundation also announced that the team's fund-raising efforts have now reached $275,000. That number will continue to grow through the sale of patches, as well as the jersey auction that is still ongoing. The jersey auction may be accessed at: www.treeoflife.givesmart.com
"The tremendous outpouring of support from our fans and the entire Pittsburgh community is a great testament to the character and compassion of our region," said Dave Soltesz, president of the Penguins Foundation. "We have all come together to show that we are, indeed, stronger than hate."
Patches are available for shipping throughout the U.S. and in Canada. There will be a $5 shipping charge for Canadian orders only.
