Hockey Checks Hunger Food Drive
Saturday, December 5th, 2015
Time: 10:00AM - 1:00PM
Location: Oak Park and River Forest Commuity
Third Annual Hockey Checks Hunger Food Drive Set For Saturday, December 5th
The OPRF Hockey Club is once again partnering with the Park District of Oak Park’s Ice Bears and the Fenwick Girls Hockey Team to fight hunger on Saturday, December 5th.
Residents in Oak Park and River Forest are asked to place non-perishable food items on their front porches by 10am on Saturday, December 5th.
Volunteers from the hockey community will pickup and deliver donated items to the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry. Food items needed for local families right now include pasta, canned soup, cereals, peanut butter, rice and beans. Food drives, especially during the holiday season, are important to help meet the demand of local families.
Last year, the Hockey Checks Hunger Food Drive collected 8 tons of food. The Huskies, Ice Bears and Lady Friars are asking everyone in Oak Park and River Forest to help provide even more food for families in need during the 2015 holiday season!
Door hangers with more information about the food drive will be delivered to homes in Oak Park and River Forest during the week of November 30th. Contact us at email@example.com for more information.
