Stampeders help ‘Stamp Out Hunger’

The Williams Lake Stampeders delivered a truck-load of food for the Salvation Army Food Bank Saturday.

The Williams Lake Stampeders delivered a truck-load of food, toys and cash for the Salvation Army Food Bank following its ‘Help the Stampeders Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive in the community last week.

At Friday night’s game against the Lac La Hache Tomahawks the Stampeders asked their fans to bring a non-perishable food item to the game.

In exchange fans were given a free program filled with multiple chances to win prizes, including a week-long Coy Cup pass won by Donna Robbins and a Stampeders’ prize pack, won by Susan Gibbon.

Team members, including team captain Aaron Zurak and sponsorship and marketing manager Calvin Dubray, delivered the goods Saturday afternoon.

Dubray said the team would like to thank the fans for making its first-ever food drive a huge success.

“It went really well,” he said. “We took more than 12 big boxes of food over there and our fans did a great job of supporting it so we need to thank them for that.”

Additionally, the Stampeders donated the money they raised from program sales.

Friday’s game was slated to be the last Stampeders’ home game of the regular season, however, they will  make up the Saturday, Dec. 7, home game that was missed versus the Houston Luckies.

The Luckies’ bus broke down during the team’s trip south to face the Stampeders and the Tomahawks, so the game has been tentatively scheduled to be played Sunday, Jan. 19, at 3:30 p.m. in Williams Lake.
