WINNIPEG, January 15, 2020 - The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club is excited to announce the launch of the 2020 Winnipeg Jets Food Drive, powered by SkipTheDishes and in support of Winnipeg Harvest.
Fans attending the Jets game on Saturday, Feb. 8 against the Ottawa Senators are encouraged to donate to the Food Drive - a $5 donation equals 15 lbs. of food for those in need. In addition to cash donations, fans can also bring non-perishable food items to drop off in the bins at all Bell MTS Place entrances.
Additionally, fans shopping at Jets Gear locations from now until Feb. 8 can make a $2 donation with their purchase. SkipTheDishes will also make a $2 donation to the Winnipeg Jets Food Drive on your behalf for every order placed that includes the voucher code "HARVEST2020" from now until Feb. 8.
Donations of cash and non-perishable food items can also be made at the Winnipeg Jets home games taking place on Jan. 31, Feb. 1, and Feb. 4. Food items and cash donations will be received at all Guest Services locations. Fans can also visit WinnipegJets.com/FOODDRIVE for further information.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with the Winnipeg Jets and supporting Winnipeg Harvest for the third year in their annual food drive," said Howard Migdal, Managing Director, Canada. "We want to play an active role in ensuring Canadians have access to safe, healthy food, and this is a fantastic opportunity for Skip to give back to our local community in a meaningful way."
The Winnipeg Jets are proud to partner with SkipTheDishes in this initiative and all donations at the games leading up to and including Feb. 8 will be given to Winnipeg Harvest. Winnipeg Harvest is a not-for-profit, community-based food distribution and training centre. Its goal is to collect and share surplus food with families in Winnipeg and Manitoba.
