PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin made a donation to the Ronald McDonald House of Pittsburgh this week, which allowed RMH to fulfill its pantry wish, continue to provide daily hot meals and catering, and buy games for the almost 20 families that are currently staying there.
“My wife, Anna, and I wanted to do something to help families in the Pittsburgh area. We know it is hard for everyone right now, but we couldn’t imagine having a child hospitalized during this uncertain time,” said Malkin. “While we are comfortable in our own homes, others are relying on the generosity of others, like Ronald McDonald House to open their doors.”
The pantry items allow families to have self-serve options while staying at the home. Also included in the donation were paper products and cleaning supplies.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support that Evgeni Malkin has extended to our Charity,” said Eleanor Reigel, Executive Director of RMH. “His generosity ensures that we can continue to provide our families with warm meals, essential household and pantry items and a safe and supportive environment to call home during this uncertain time.”
The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation also sent Penguins promotional items, blankets, and Evgeni Malkin bobbleheads
