Greenwich Hockey Team Shares its Softer Side to Preschoolers at Family Centers Gateway Preschool

A group of players from the Greenwich High School boys hockey team recently showed the students at Family Centers’ Gateway Preschool that while they might be tough on the ice, hockey players have big hearts.

Conor Santry and several of his teammates spent the afternoon of Friday, Feb. 3 at the preschool to help each student create a personalized photo frame that they could give to their parents as Valentine’s Day gifts.

The team also brought each child a Valentine’s bag filled with cards, a stuffed animal and candy.

This was the second time in the past six months that the players visited the Gateway Preschool.  In October, the team decorated pumpkins with the children in celebration of Halloween.
