Wings Help In Feeding Those On The Front Line

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings website,

...both Larkin and Abdelkader agreed with Glendening that a complete team effort was the next way to go.

"We had been planning on doing something for us to all do together and rally around," Larkin said. "It just kind of happened, all the guys chipped in, coaching staff as well, so it was good. Hopefully we can get out there and let people know we're supporting the people working and the people fighting this."

The players talked to Dr. Tony Colucci, the Wings' head team physician, when they were deciding what to do.

"We came up with the idea that feeding the workers would be the best way we think we could support everyone down there," Abdelkader said. "We collected money within our group, sent it out in a group chat, collected the money and everyone was excited to be a part of it and to do something for the city and people that work downtown and are going through these tough times on the front lines, working long hours. We just thought we could do something that could hopefully show our support and gratitude for them."

The Wings then found their perfect partner in the city of Detroit and Mayor Mike Duggan.

On April 6, the city announced a program called Feed the Front Lines Detroit to provide meals to the Detroit police, fire, EMS and health care workers while also supporting Detroit restaurants.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
