Sharks in the Community: Give Moore for the Holidays
Now in its 5th season, “Give Moore for the Holidays” is a player driven toy drive to benefit local families. Worcester Sharks defenseman and three time recipient of the Worcester Sharks “Specialty Man of the Year” award, Nick Petrecki rallied his teammates to participate by purchasing toys for children from the Rainbow Child Development Center of Worcester.
This season, the Sharks invited 20 families to attend the Worcester Sharks game vs. the Portland Pirates on Sunday, December 16th. After the game, the Worcester Sharks players presented gifts to the kids as part of "Give Moore for the Holidays".
Sharks players have treated several families to a hockey game and a total of over $10,000 of toys over the last four seasons.
The player driven charity has spread throughout professional hockey and over 20 other teams now participate!
