Team Maryland Serves The Homeless

Release Date : 1/6/2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. Team Maryland, in a continued sign of the goodwill of hockey players in the AYHL, recently went on a charitable venture in their area.

In response to the national call to community service to be celebrated this month, the members of the Team Maryland U16 hockey team gathered to serve the homeless men sheltered at the Father McKenna Center in Washington, DC.  It was a tremendous experience for the Team to serve these men, feed them, stock the Center's pantry with canned food donations from both the whole of Team Maryland and the Georgetown Titans, clean the Center and prepare the cots for the Center's guests.  We were grateful for the opportunity to be with these men and have them share their stories as well as learn about the rich history and remarkable work of the Center and its founder, Father Horace McKenna, Maryland and Washington's "Priest to the Poor."
