A Non-Traditional Turkey Delivery

by Michelle Crechiolo @PensInsideScoop / Penguins Team Reporter

Normally at this time of year, Penguins players make their annual trip to Rainbow Kitchen in Homestead to serve Thanksgiving meals to local residents.

But of course, this isn't a normal year. The Penguins aren't in season, the players aren't in town and Rainbow Kitchen's dining room is currently closed (they are offering take-out meals instead) because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite that, the team continued to deliver on their Thanksgiving tradition when the community needs it most.
