Thanks to the generosity of Williams Lake Stampeders’ fans during last Saturday’s home game the shelves at the Salvation Army Food Bank are looking a little more full this week.
“The Stamps would like to thank the best fans in the Central Interior Hockey League for supporting the Stamps’ Stamp out Hunger campain,” said Calvin Dubray, Stampeders’ sponsorship and marketing director. “Also, Heartland Toyota for partnering with us and Save-On-Foods for donating the shopping carts.”
Next Saturday, Dec. 13, when the Stampeders host the Quesnel Kangaroos at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, the team will be hosting a toque, mitten and teddy bear toss and are asking fans to bring any of the previously mentioned items to throw onto the ice during the first intermission.
All of the items will go to the Boys and Girls Club to distribute to children in need.
“The support and generosity of our fans has been tremendous and we know they will come through again,” Dubray said.
Also, during the second intermission the team will host a turkey shoot where 10 fans will be selected from their program ticket to shoot for a chance to win one of 10 turkeys. Any turkeys not claimed will go to the Salvation Army.
Puck drop Saturday is 7:30 p.m. at the CMRC.
