Back in early April, when the Flyers were beginning a new month of the suspended 2019-20 season, Kevin Hayes didn't have any problem grasping the magnitude of the stoppage.
“No matter how much anyone in the league says they miss the game," Hayes said, "it’s a lot more important to figure out what’s going with our society right now."
Hayes and the Flyers have continued to help.
In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, Hayes and the Flyers teamed up with Brûlée Catering to deliver a Taco Tuesday-themed lunch to 10 police precincts and firehouses across Philadelphia. The deliveries fed 300 first responders who have served the community during the coronavirus outbreak.
In April, Hayes showed his support to those working on the front line of the pandemic by donating lunch from Angelo's Pizzeria.
On Tuesday, Hayes had the following message for Philly's first responders.
Today we’re dropping off Mexican-style meals for Cinco de Mayo to heroes at 10 different fire stations and police precincts throughout Philadelphia. Showing support to first responders is something that means a lot to me. You can help support them through my Hayes’ Heroes program online by nominating a local community hero. Thank you so much for always keeping our community safe and keeping everyone healthy. I hope you enjoy your lunch and hopefully see you soon.
