The Adirondack Flames visited the offices of Catholic Charities yesterday to paint the office complex as a part of their “Day of Caring.” The Flames’ “Day of Caring” was run in partnership with the Tri-County United Way, who the team has been partnered with all season.
The Flames, through their partnership with the United Way, sent six players to the Catholic Charities offices with supplies provided by Better Than New Paint in South Glens Falls and Sherwin Williams in Queensbury. The players, painted the lobby and first floor of the Catholic Charities offices, giving the interior of the building a fresh coat of yellow paint.
The players, Brett Cameron, Ryan Culkin, Brant Harris, Brett Kulak, Pat Sieloff and Mathieu Tousignant, along with three Flames front office members, spent their afternoon at the offices with rollers, brushes and paint. The Flames were able to complete their painting project in the afternoon and early evening.
“We’d like to thank the Tri-County United Way, Catholic Charities, Anthony Muscatello from Better Than New Paint and Sherwin Williams for their generosity and enthusiasm with allowing us to make a difference in the community,” Adirondack Flames President Brian Petrovek said. “We eyed a Day of Caring platform all season and it was finally able to come together with the painting project. Our players have once again shown their enthusiasm for helping the local community and were able help out a United Way partnered organization.”
