The Pittsburgh Penguins today presented a donation of $348,705 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to benefit victims and families of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill and provide recovery support for the community.
The team, its fans, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and various corporate partners have conducted ongoing fund-raising efforts, in a campaign called “Stronger Than Hate,” since the tragic shooting at the synagogue took 11 lives on October 27.
The Penguins also will be donating $200,000 to the city’s newly-created Public Safety Support Trust Fund to honor the police, fire, medic and public safety personnel who responded, especially the six officers who were wounded or injured during the shooting.
Pittsburgh Penguins players will wear special “Stronger Than Hate” patches on their jerseys for tonight’s game against the New York Islanders at PPG Paints Arena (7 p.m.).
The patches – and the accompanying jersey auction – are part of the organization’s effort to support victims and families of Saturday’s tragic shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.
Each player will sign his jersey after the game, and the jerseys will be available for auction at treeoflife.givesmart.com.
The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation is making two donations to support victims and families of Saturday’s tragic shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.
