Monday afternoon, the Washington Capitals visited MedStar Georgetown University Hospital to deliver some holiday cheer for those in need.
Players divided into groups and distributed blankets, kid’s club packages, and hats collected as part of the team’s recent drive for Ellie’s Hats. There were also balloons, cupcakes, gifts, and a photographer which was all made possible from funds raised for Hope for Henry. Finally, the players and patients also brushed Capitals-themed canvas paintings in conjunction with Tracy’s Kids, a pediatric art therapy organization. The paintings will be autographed and auctioned off during the Capitals game on December 29.
