The Penn State Berks Ice Hockey Team donated more than $450 to the American Cancer Society in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The funds donated were generated by the admission fees collected at the on Oct. 20 home game against Lebanon Valley College. In addition, throughout the month of October, the players wore pink hockey socks, used pink hockey tape, and wore pink ribbons on their helmets during home games, in support of the fight against breast cancer.

On Saturday, Nov. 3, team members continued their community service by helping to clear trails and assisting with other outdoor maintenance at Nolde Forest State Park in Reading.
