Pittsburgh, Pa. – Dec. 11, 2013 – The Robert Morris University women’s hockey team has teamed up with the Chatham University women’s hockey team for a fundraiser that benefits the people of North Hills Community Outreach.
North Hills Community Outreach places people off the streets and into their rapid re-housing program. Colonial hockey alums Jennifer Kindret and Courtney Langston came up with the idea of providing those in the program a “move-in” basket containing items such as toilet paper, shampoo, and cups.
Kindret – currently an assistant coach for the Cougars – and Langston reached out to both Robert Morris and Chatham to help and turned the fundraising effort into a friendly competition. The teams have had two weeks to gather as many items as they can to fill the baskets. With Kindret representing the Cougars and Langston serving as the Colonials representative, the “losing” team will have their representative and captain participate in the Pittsburgh Polar Plunge this coming Saturday.
At 16-3-1, Robert Morris enters the winter break with its best first-half record in program history. The Colonials return to the ice on Jan. 4-5, 2014 with a non-conference series against St. Lawrence at 84 Lumber Arena.
