The Carolina Hurricanes come by their team name honestly, and unfortunately for many citizens of our state, Hurricane Matthew wreaked heavy destruction this past weekend. Multiple fatalities have been confirmed, over 2,000 people have been rescued, almost 250,000 homes are still without power, and flooding will worsen in some areas over the next few days as rivers are yet to crest.
The Canes staff and the PNC Arena are holding a relief drive over the next two days to collect vital supplies to be delivered to our neighbors to the east.
Please help if you can. Here’s how.
RALEIGH, NC - Don Waddell, President of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Hurricanes and PNC Arena will host a Hurricane Matthew Relief Drive, Wednesday, Oct. 12, through Thursday, Oct. 13.
