A few weeks ago I put up a post called "Sierra Family Needs Our Help".
For those that don't recall, the Sierra family's house was struck by lightning and it destroyed everything.
Thankfully the family was not home and nobody was hurt.
Unfortunately they lost everything and like any family put in this situation, could use any support that was available.
Angelo Seirra plays for The Garage Bar team in the Chiller Adult Hockey League. He is an avid Ohio State Hockey and Hockey Beats Down cancer supporter. The goal of that post was to help he and his family out in anyway we could.
I'll let Angelo say the rest:
I want to thank you for the call for support and the unbelievable response that came our way. My family is very grateful for all of the donated items, especially the boys. We have been able to use the items and gifts cards to furnish the rental house we are in and make sure my boys had clothes for school. I cannot believe the outpouring of support that was shown. Big thanks to you and to the hockey community at large, everyone really "carried the flag" for the Serra family!
On behalf of Light the Lamp I would also like to thank anyone out there who helped lend a helping hand in the Sierra's family time of need.
The hockey community will never cease to amaze me!
