There are few things better than seeing a professional athlete give back to their community.
With Veterans Day just around the corner in the United States, Sidney Crosby did just that on Friday afternoon. The Pittsburgh Penguins superstar decided to donate the brand-new 2019 Honda Passport that he won for being named the 2019 NHL All-Star Game’s Most Valuable Player to a veteran in the community.
There likely isn’t anyone better to receive it than Madeline Malizio.
The 28-year-old has been an Army Specialist for the past five years and is going to school for legal studies. On top of that, she’s a single mother to a three-year-old son, Maverick.
Before Friday, she didn’t have a car.
Upon hearing her story, Crosby decided to change that.
