For the second consecutive year, the PawSox delivered roses to local senior citizens in an effort to spread cheer surrounding Valentine's Day. This year, the PawSox visited the North Attleboro Senior Center, St. Elizabeth Manor in Bristol, and the Darlington Assisted Living Home in Pawtucket.
"Paws made everyone's day a little brighter," said Rose Carreiro, Activity Director at St. Elizabeth Manor in Bristol, RI. "The residents were so thrilled with the roses, and we're excited to see a baseball game at McCoy Stadium this spring."
"What a joy it is to open hearts, lift spirits, and elicit smiles with something as simple as a flower from a polar bear," said PawSox President Dr. Charles A. Steinberg. "We are continually amazed and inspired by the power of baseball to enhance the lives of the members of our community."
In a week where the PawSox mascots have made nearly fifty rose deliveries to fans in the area, the embraceable polar bears once again elicited bright smiles from some of the team's most passionate fans.
