Lakers Food Drive a HUGE Success!
Submitted By Kathy Powers on Friday, December 23, 2016
The holidays are a time for family and friends to spend time together
and take a break from all the hustle and bustle of life and yes even take a
break from hockey.
It is also during that time that we think of those less fortunate and give back to our community. This year the Huron Perth Lakers challenged every team to fill as many grocery carts as possible with food donations.
The Minor Bantams filled 2 out of a total of 6 grocery carts with food donated by the Huron Perth Lakers.
Thank you to all those that donated food and made the trip to Stratford on a snowy Friday night. Also thank you to Zehrs for lending us the grocery carts.
In Ontario 335,944 people visit food banks with 33.4% of them being children. The Lakers donation will help support 230 families in Perth County and 107 families in Huron County. Way to go Lakers!
Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
