PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Penguins will sponsor their 13th annual Score Against Hunger food drive on Saturday, November 12 when the Penguins meet the New York Rangers at Mellon Arena at 7:30 pm.
Every fan who brings a non-perishable food item to the game, or makes a cash donation that evening, will be eligible to win autographed Penguins’ memorabilia.
All food and money collected will be donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for distribution to needy people in the Pittsburgh area. Fans are encouraged to participate in the food drive since the need to assist hungry people in the area has increased tremendously in the past year.
Food and donations will be collected at all Mellon Arena gates from 6:30 pm through the first 10 minutes of the opening period.
Penguins’ Score Against Hunger food drives have collected over 14,200 pounds of food and $11,000 in donations since 1992.
