A blood drive in memory of Carl Andreozzi of Barrington will be held Saturday morning at Brown University.
"Coach Carl, as he was known, was a resident of Barrington up until his death two years ago, and his mother, wife and children still reside in town," said Kate Garabedian of Prince's Hill Avenue.
"He was a hockey coach and on the board of directors at the Greater Providence Youth Hockey Association, and we are hosting a blood drive in his honor at Meehan Auditorium from 8 am to 1 pm," she said.
"There are many residents from Barrington that skate at Meehan Auditorium," she said. "Several local businesses, including Barrington Radio and Electric, are advertising this event for us."
"Coach Carl was not only a loving husband and father, but someone who worked tirelessly for the love of hockey to make our league a better place for all -- players, coaches and parents," Garabedian said. "He is missed by all who knew him. Please honor his memory and his family by donating on Saturday, Aug. 25."
