CHARLOTTE, NC—The Charlotte Checkers announced today that they have donated baby clothing to the nursery at Presbyterian Hospital as part of their ongoing charitable efforts.
These “onesies” will be given to newborn babies at Presbyterian Hospital, while supplies last.
“We have a fantastic relationship with Presbyterian Hospital and are pleased to donate these items,” said Checkers COO Tera Black. “The ‘onesies’ are universally appealing and it is never too early to begin cheering on your hometown hockey team.”
Pictures will be available on the Presbyterian Healthcare Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/presbyterianhealthcare) and parents are encouraged to upload pictures of their children in Checkers gear.
