The Carolinas were devastated by Hurricane Florence earlier this month and people across North America have come together to help raise money and awareness towards the Hurricane Florence relief efforts.
Ahead of Tuesday night’s preseason game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Nashville Predators, the Canes added a special decal to the back of their helmets before puck drop, and it’s a small reminder to everyone back home that they’re all in this together.
The Hurricanes haven’t made any announcements just yet as to whether or not they’ll be rocking the decals all season long or just for the time being, but that’s not all they’re doing. The team is also raising money for those affected by Hurricane Florence by donating all proceeds from special ticket packages sold to their games on Sunday, October 7, against the New York Rangers, and Tuesday, October 9, against the Vancouver Canucks to The North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund.
They’re not the only Carolina franchise giving back to the community during this time as members of the Carolina Panthers helped pack emergency food boxed at Second Harvest for Hurricane Florence relief efforts on Monday.
Steph Curry, John Wall and Chris Paul also recently teamed up to help raise money towards the relief efforts through the Edward Charles Foundation.
A little bit goes a long way right about now, so it’s nice to see all the local teams and Carolina natives helping out during this difficult time.
