FALCONS MAKE DONATION TO TORNADO RELIEF
Springfield, MA – The Springfield Falcons, proud members of the American Hockey League, announced today they are making a $2,500 donation to the Pioneer Valley chapter of the Red Cross to assist those people affected by the tornado that hit Western Massachusetts on Wednesday, June 1. Falcons’ majority owner, Charlie Pompea, is also making a personal donation of $5,000 to the Pioneer Valley chapter of the Red Cross to benefit tornado relief efforts.
“The Falcons organization wants to do as much as they can to assist in the relief efforts in all of our surrounding communities,” said Falcons president and general manager Bruce Landon. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families affected and we will continue to assist as our community continues to rally together at a time of need.”
On Saturday, June 4 from 10 am to 3 pm, the Falcons will set up a drop off area in front of their offices on Falcons Way, allowing individuals to make donations of clothing, blankets or cash to benefit multiple agencies in the tornado relief efforts. Any individual making a donation at the Falcons’ drop off area on Saturday will receive a ticket voucher good for any Sunday home game during the 2011-12 Falcons’ season.
