Bruins face coverings are for sale, with royalties going to charity

A branded way to support a good cause.

It looks like face coverings are going to be the way of the world (or at least the United States) for the next few months, and the NHL has decided to try to help by licensing and selling team-branded coverings.

While this may feel a little odd and capitalistic, the good news is that the royalties from all purchases will be donated to two hunger-related organizations in the United States and Canada.

So yes, it is a nice bit of capitalism, but at least the league appears to be trying to help.

It’s unlikely that you’ll be wearing these to sit in the stands and cheer on the Bruins for quite some time, but at least you can go out and do your part by minimizing the risk of spreading COVID-19.

NOTE: The NHL will donate its royalties from the purchase by the vendor to Feeding America (for US sales) and Food Banks Canada (for Canadian sales). The face coverings will ship by July 9.

Whether you agree with the league’s decision to sell stuff like this or not, we hope that you and your family are staying safe, and that we can get back to non-COVID life as soon as possible.
