The organization donated 800 Thanksgiving turkeys to families in need, as facilitated by Helping Hand Mission, an organization that assists families on a one-on-one basis with food, clothing, furniture and shelter. This marks the fifth year of the Hurricanes’ Thanksgiving partnership with Helping Hand Mission, and by far its largest turkey donation. Contributions for the turkeys came from the team, its players and the Hurricanes’ Tickets for Turkeys campaign, through which a portion of every ticket sold went toward the purchase of turkeys. Hurricanes players Kris Versteeg, Brad Malone, Chris Terry and Riley Nash each made significant contributions to the cause.
