WASHINGTON, December 9, 2013 — For a number of local Wal-Mart shoppers, Santa won’t be delivering their presents this year. Washington Capital players will instead.
This Wednesday, December 11, players and coaches from the Capitals, Wizards and Mystics will deliver gifts that were purchased at Wal-Mart as part of the annual Family-to-Family gift delivery.
Players including Nicklas Backstrom, Eric Fehr, Mike Green, Steve Oleksy and Joel Ward from the Capitals and Trevor Azia, Trevor Booker, Nene, John Wall and Martell Webster from the Wizards will join their partners and spouses in delivering gifts. Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld and Mystics head coach Mike Thibault will also help with gift delivery alongside mascots Slapshot and G-Wiz.
The annual Family-to-Family gift delivery is part of Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation’s holiday outreach.
