MPMHA 6th ANNUAL "THE BIG GIVE" FOOD DRIVE

MPMHA 6th ANNUAL "THE BIG GIVE" FOOD DRIVE

Last season MPMHA initiated our 5th food drive to assist the Mount Pearl food bank and give back to our community.

We were successful last year in our 5th year of our food drive in placing over 26,000 pieces of food in our local food banks!

Accumulated food in the past years food drive were as follows, 1st yr 6,000 pieces of food, 2nd yr 12,000, 3rd yr 19,000, 4th yr 22,000. Amazing results!

This year marks our 6th food drive anniversary at our MPMHA. The hope is to expand this program and give back even more. Our goal this year is to well surpass last years amount to aid our local food banks.

As in last year we have enlisted some support from three major supermarkets in Mt Pearl, Dominion, Sobeys and Colemans. As well we will use Mt Pearl Senior High as a headquarters for the day.
Our primary focus for Mount Pearl Minor Hockey is to GIVE BACK. Each time our players put on their jerseys for door to door bottle drives Mount Pearl residents always respond generously. Our community is a constant supporter of our many Reid Centre dances and adult volunteers are always available to support our tournaments.

This food drive is a means for MPMHA players to GIVE BACK and pass on the important values that the game of hockey has taught them. It's an exciting day for the children to have fun together with their team off the ice, working together towards a common goal and showing them they can make a make a positive impact in their community.

We are inviting ONE representative from each MPMHA team, ie: Parent Rep, Manager, Head Coach or Assistant Coach, to attend an information meeting on:

Sunday Nov 5th @7:30pm
Multipurpose Room – Summit Center

Please bring confirmation of a commitment from your team to be part of this important event.

Further details on this event will be discussed at this meeting such as route plans, trucks available to transport food and additional logistics.

The official date of the food drive is Saturday Nov 25, 2017.

See you at our kick off meeting on Sunday Nov 5th!
