DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings front office is celebrating the holiday season this week by volunteering at Michigan Humane Society’s Detroit Center for Animal Care.

Former player Kirk Maltby will join Kal at the Detroit Center for Animal Care on Wednesday, Dec. 19, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. to “Fill the Truck” with donations for the Michigan Humane Society’s Free Pet Food Bank Program, which is part of their Keeping Families Together initiative. MHS is asking supporters to donate unopened bags of pet food and straw, which will be distributed at no charge to pet owners of low-income households, in exchange for the chance to meet two Red Wings personalities. For more information, visit www.michiganhumane.org or call 1-866-MHUMANE, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

“Every day, our lobby is full of people who love their pets, but have fallen on hard times and can no longer afford to care for them,” said Debby MacDonald, MHS Chief Cruelty Investigator and MHS Detroit facility manager. “Our free pet food bank program helps feed thousands of hungry pets every single year. That’s what MHS’ Keeping Families Together program is all about – helping those most in need, and keeping more pets in their loving homes.”

Wednesday, Dec. 19, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
