• Penguins selling 'Stronger Than Hate' patches to benefit Tree of Life victims, families

    Updated:

    The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation announced that they will be selling "Stronger Than Hate" patches identical to those worn by the Pens on Tuesday.

    All of the money will go to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to benefit the victims and families of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill.

    The patch costs $20.

    “The tremendous outpouring of support from our fans and the entire Pittsburgh community is a great testament to the character and compassion of our region,” said Dave Soltesz, president of the Penguins Foundation. “We have all come together to show that we are, indeed, stronger than hate.”
