Each player will wear a “Stronger Than Hate” patch on their jersey with their logo over the Star Of David. The team will also donate $50,000 to the victims of the synagogue shooting, as well as all proceeds from a raffle they’re holding tonight.

“Hatred and discrimination have no place in Pittsburgh or anywhere else,” the Penguins official Instagram wrote in a caption showing the patches.

11 people were killed on Saturday after Robert Bowers allegedly opened fire at the Tree Of Life Synagogue at the Squirrel Hill area in Pittsburgh, PA. Six others are injured in the hospital.
