An 11-Year Tradition: Alumni Assist St. Francis Inn for Thanksgiving
On Nov. 16, 2016 the Flyers Alumni continued an annual tradition that now spans 11 years. The Alumni worked in conjunction with Sysco Foods to deliver a truckload Thanksgiving food -- turkey with all the traditional fixings -- to the St. Francis Inn ministries in Kensington.
The food truck was loaded at Sysco Foods in South Philadelphia and then delivered to St. Francis Inn. Participating Alumni included Danny Briere, Brian Boucher, Brian Propp, Doug Crossman, Brad Marsh and Bob "the Hound" Kelly; representing a multi-generational group with ties to the Flyers from the 1970s to the 2010s.
St. Francis Inn is located at 2441 Kensington Avenue in Philadelphia. The Inn has been serving meals to local individuals and families in need for more than 30 years.
