I’ve said it before, and I will say it again. The Tampa Bay Lightning organization’s work is like no other. They do things in the community all the time, not for the cameras or the glory, not for the publicity, but for the good of the city.
Last Friday the Lightning employees, through the Community Heroes Program and C.H.A.R.G.E., volunteered at the Crisis Center Of Tampa Bay. They cleaned, decorated for Halloween, organized, and landscaped. The Crisis Center helps so many people, and this was a great way to thank them.
On Thursday, October 11, they will be participating in the 2012 United Way Suncoast Day of Caring. This is part of the C.H.A.R.G.E. initiative. They will be working at 6 different locations around Tampa Bay. 120 employees in all from different departments will be participating in the event. The six locations include: Children First, Redlands Christian Migrant Association, Girls Inc. of Pinellas, Tampa Metro YMCA, Champions for Children, and Feeding America.
Keep it up Lightning, keep it up. Thanks for being more than just a team and doing charity only for the public eye. *cough*Buccaneers*ahem.
