Sabres and volunteers keep Hurricane Sandy victims in mind, package hygiene kits to be delivered by LaFontaine, others

The Sabres continue to keep downstate residents affected by Hurricane Sandy in mind. Team employees and 200 volunteers this morning are packaging 3,500 hygiene kits that will be delivered to battered Long Island residents by former Sabres and Islanders Pat LaFontaine, Clark Gillies and Benoit Hogue.

The kits contain products such as shampoo, soap, deodorant, razors, toothbrushes and toothpaste. They will be loaded onto trucks and delivered to Long Island, parts of which were devasted by October's superstorm.
