Washington Capitals alumni Sylvain Cote and Rod Langway participated in a Martin Luther King Day of Service project in partnership with Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation and Playworks Washington, D.C., at Bunker Hill Elementary School in northeast D.C. on Jan. 16.

They were joined by more than 80 Capitals, Mystics, Valor and Wizards fans, AmeriCorps and Playworks volunteers who took part in tasks that included painting a mural, creating inspirational posters to hang inside the school, and cleaning out and organizing classrooms. Volunteers also donated winter clothing items that will be given to D.C. Public Schools that partner with Playworks.
