The Washington Capitals, Comcast SportsNet, Mix 107.3 and the Capital Area Food Bank are teaming up to host a canned food drive this month. Caps fans are urged to donate at least one can of food to help in the struggle to end hunger in the Washington area.
You can do your part to help this worthwhile cause by donating in the lobby of the Capitals front office at Kettler Capitals Iceplex between Nov. 7 and 21. Stop by the Capitals front office any weekday* between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to drop off your nonperishable food items.
All donations benefit the Capital Area Food Bank, the largest public nonprofit food and nutrition education resource in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Last year the Capital Area Food Bank distributed 33 million pounds of food, including 15 million pounds of fresh produce, to more than 478,000,000 people through a network of more than 700 nonprofit partners. The Capital Area Food Bank has served the National Capital region for 32 years.*Note that the Capitals office will not be open on Monday, Nov. 12 and will close at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Donations will not be accepted during periods the office is closed.
