The Dallas Stars looked to pick up a couple points Thursday when they hosted the Vancouver Canucks, but the night was about more than just the playoff push. The Dallas Stars asked fans to come out to the AAC with donations for victims of the recent explosions in West, Texas.
At the game on Thursday night, the Dallas Stars Foundation raised over $3,000. Players from the team also will contribute. The Foundation is taking every effort to ensure the money gets put to the best use possible.
There are many people who are suffering hardship as a consequence of the explosions Wednesday. A nursing home and school were leveled by the blasts, along with many homes. The Dallas Stars hope that these payments, which have been made possible due to the generous donations from fans, will make a difference.
But the Stars relief effort will not stop there. The community has not only suffered damage to homes and other buildings, but there were several survivors who were injured during this tragedy.
The Dallas Stars, along with Carter BloodCare will hold a blood drive Tuesday to help victims of the accident. Fans are invited to join the relief effort by giving blood at the Dr Pepper StarCenter in Frisco from 8 to 11am, Tuesday, April 23.
All Next Week - Monetary donations can be made at Dr Pepper Star Center in Frisco, Euless, McKinney, Farmers Branch or by calling the Dallas Stars Executive Offices at (214) 387-5500
