Griffins players, coaches pick up bells for Salvation Army story image
KENTWOOD, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Grand Rapids Griffins hockey players hung up their skates and picked up their bells for the salvation Army.

The Griffins Players, along with their coaches, including former Red Wings star Chris Chelios, set up two different red kettles at the Family Fare store in Kentwood to collect donations.

Each hour they held a friendly competition to see who could raise the most money for the Salvation Army.

"This is obviously a wonderful time of the year," said Griffins coach Jeff Blashill. "A time of year that means a lot to me personally, but it's also a time that can be a tough time of year for a lot of people. We want to make sure it's happy for everybody."

The Griffins players say the bell ringing is also a great opportunity to meet some of their fans face-to-face.
