Penguins' fans reached into their wallets and shopping carts with overwhelming generosity for the team’s 19th annual “Score Against Hunger” food drive on Wednesday, November 10.
A total of 1,515 pounds of food and $2,267 in cash donations were collected at the game for the benefit of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
Penguins’ fans were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the game or to make a cash donation to help feed the hungry at local community shelters and food pantries where the need for food has increased tremendously over the past few years.
Fans making donations were eligible to win autographed Penguins memorabilia during the game.
Since 1992, Penguins fans have donated over 27,000 pounds of food and over $23,000 at the team’s “Score Against Hunger” drives. View Photo Gallery
