Men's Hockey Delivers Donated Toys to Hasbro Children's Hospital

PROVIDENCE, RI - The Brown men's hockey team, which hosted a Toy Drive spanning three games in December, delivered the donated toys to Hasbro Children's Hospital on Thursday, December 17th. Thanks to the generosity of Bears' hockey fans, Brown was able to donate many needed items to the Children's Hospital for the 2009 Holiday season.

Senior tri-captains Jordan Pietrus (Winnipeg, MAN), Devin Timberlake (Port Alberni, BC) and Aaron Volpatti (Revelstoke, BC) loaded the toys into boxes on Thursday morning and made the trip downtown along with head coach Brendan Whittet to deliver the donated items to the hospital.

Unfortunately, because of the hospital's visitor restrictions on children under the age of 18 due to the current H1N1 outbreak, the team could not visit with any of the patients. However, they hope to make a return trip to the hospital when the restrictions get lifted to visit with patients.
