Lightning, Panthers, and NHL/NHLPA Help With Hurricane Irma Relief
By Monika Cook
Millions of people across the state of Florida are feeling the effects of Hurricane Irma. Miami/Fort Lauderdale, Naples, Lakeland, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville all felt effects of the Hurricane, as well as the majority of the state.
Hurricane Irma hit Florida on Sunday, starting at the Florida Keys. Both the Tampa Bay Lightning as well as Florida Panthers evacuated their teams before the Hurricane was scheduled to hit.
Due to the damage of the Hurricane, the Lightning, Panthers, and NHL/NHLPA have come together to donate 2.7 million dollars for relief needed across the state.
Alex Killorn joined NHL Tonight hosts to talk about the donation, stating that the players as athletes need to help out as much as they can.
Donations are being accepted through the Lightning Foundation, Florida Panthers Foundation, and also at preseason home games.
So if you would like to donate you can either attend one of the games or check out the website:
