Canes help with Sandy relief

November 6, 2012 

— The Carolina Hurricanes and PNC Arena will host a Hurricane Sandy relief drive Tuesday through Friday.

Staff members will drive the items collected to Staten Island this weekend, delivering them to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation for use in the recovery process.

Fans can contribute items each day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at PNC Arena’s VIP entrance adjacent to the box office. Canes coach Kirk Muller and Ron Francis, vice president of hockey operations, will help collect items from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Items needed for the relief and clean up efforts include tools, masks, work gloves, garbage bags, flashlights and other clean-up materials.

The Stephen Tiller Tunnel to Towers Foundation was created in honor of FDNY firefighter Stephen Tiller, who gave his life Sept. 11, 2001. Chip Alexander
