Hug-A-Hero | Month of the Military Child

presented by 84 Lumber

Event Details

Event Overview

April is the Month of the Military Child. These children deal with separations, deployments and even their parents’ injuries as part of the life they were born into. The Pittsburgh Penguins are inspired by their strength and proud to salute these children with Hug-A-Heroes, which lend support during these trying times.  Each Hug-A-Hero is customized to have a picture of the child’s parent on one side… a member of our military who is serving overseas.
