Faith and Fellowship Night with the Chicago Wolves
February in Chicago is a cold place to live. But thanks to hundreds of volunteer blanket-makers, those nights are getting a little warmer.
Prior to Saturday’s Chicago Wolves game against the Tucson Roadrunners, The Salvation Army and the Chicago Wolves hosted a unique “acts of service” event. More than 300 volunteers joined together to help spread the message of kindness by making blankets for homeless families in need across Chicagoland.
The 90-minute Faith and Fellowship Service Project was packed with laughs, camaraderie, and joy as more than one hundred blankets were assembled. The blankets were immediately distributed to individuals who find themselves living in the cold throughout the winter season.
Families, community groups, and businesses – including GE Healthcare, Slalom Consulting, Hinsdale Township High School District 86, Hope Church, Chicago Parrothead Club, and Wolves season ticket holders – all joined together to Do the Most Good.
And following the event, volunteers enjoyed the Calder Cup Champion Chicago Wolves game across the street in the Allstate Arena.
Unfortunately, the result on the ice wasn’t as good as the Roadrunners defeated the Wolves 6 - 2.
