With social distancing guidelines still in effect, the Philadelphia Flyers have drawn up a resource guide for fans to reference from home.
Things have been tough for the last few months. Fans and players alike have been sheltered in place with nothing to do. So the Flyers have come up with a resource guide that allows fans to find new ways to connect with each other and even the community around them.
There are a multitude of different things they have offered. It goes anywhere from places to donate to activities to perform at home.
Separated into different sections, it all starts off with different ways we can all help the cause. Philabundance, one of the area’s largest hunger relief organizations is looking for volunteer help. They are seeking volunteers to help pack and deliver meals and groceries to people who are unable to get them themselves.
If you are unable to leave your house for that, there is another way to donate. Flyers Charities is accepting donations to help support those non profit organizations. It’s as easy as texting FLYERS to 797979. You’ll be able to selection a donation amount of $10, $25, $50, $100 or $500.
Another way you can support the cause is through the Fanatics All In Challenge. Eric Lindros and the Flyers have joined up to provide a once in a lifetime game day experience. One winner and 11 guests would have the chance for a behind the scenes experience with Lindros.
There are also plenty of stay at home activities to keep everyone busy. The Flyers have developed a slew of coloring pages that are available for download. And who knows, you might even get a mention from Brian Elliott if you pick his coloring page.
The choices are endless. Gritty is featured plenty on the coloring pages alone. You can color in him and Claude or Gritty himself in his Wonder Women costume.
And speaking of Gritty, you can join him on Instagram every Monday-Thursday. There he has welcomed on current players such as Kevin Hayes, Scott Laughton and Joel Farabee. He even had Scott Hartnell on.
The activities during his 1/4 Hour of Power have gone anywhere from yoga to charades and a drawing competition. You never know what you’re gonna get each day.
Need something else to watch during these long days? The NHL has opened up all sorts of video from current seasons as well as seasons past. You can watch documentaries, classic games, cup films, etc. There is something for every hockey fan to binge during these unprecedented times.
The Flyers also have their own broadcast network with episodes airing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You can listen to Flyers Daily with Jason Myrtetus. He dives in to things about the current roster and almost always have player interviews lined up.
And if you’re looking for some exciting content that is about things other than hockey, you can tune in to Everything But Hockey from Andrea Helfrich. The podcast took a brief hiatus due to the current situation, but has returned with at-home interviews. You won’t want to miss them.
There are plenty of things everyone can do to keep themselves occupied during all of this. And the Flyers have done a nice job summing up just a few of the things available to everyone.
