IceCaps and Purolator to Shut Out Hunger
The St. John’s IceCaps are partnering with Purolator for the Purolator Shuts Out Hunger Food Drive on Sunday, February 10th to support the Community Food Sharing Association.
The event will take place from 3-4 p.m., prior to the IceCaps game versus the Connecticut Whale. IceCaps fans attending the game are encouraged to participate by bringing non-perishable food items to the Purolator volunteers stationed at the Mile One Centre entrances. In return, fans will be entered into a draw for a replica IceCaps jersey.
Additionally, each time an IceCaps player scores a goal, Purolator will donate 100 pounds of food towards the Purolator Shuts Out Hunger food drive.
“The St. John’s IceCaps are proud to team up with Purolator to fight hunger in our community,” said IceCaps President and Chief Executive Officer, Danny Williams. “I’m sure our fans will rise to the occasion and show their support for this worthy cause.”
“Partnering with the IceCaps on the Purolator Shuts Out Hunger food drive allows us to team up and engage all IceCaps fans to give back and support their local community,” said Stephen Noseworthy, Purolator’s District Manager, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Last year, the Community Food Sharing Association and its 56 member agencies provided support to nearly 32,000 clients in need of food. All proceeds from the food drive will support the Community Food Sharing Association, which is fighting to end hunger by providing food and resources to those in need in throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
