Calgary Canucks Junior Hockey Helps Feed Calgary Kids

Throughout February, the Calgary Canucks Junior Hockey community collected snacks and supplies to help ensure there are no hungry kids in Calgary! We are so grateful for their support.

Lindsay from the Calgary Canucks community shares: “The Calgary Canucks are always looking for ways to support local kids and strengthen our community. Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids has given us a great opportunity to partner with them for our annual February Snack Drive. At all of our home games in February we put out a basket to collect snacks and supplies and a jar to collect financial donations. We promote our snack drive using our website, social media, and game day announcements so that everyone knows the types of snacks that are needed. The Calgary Canucks community loves to help out and we love having BB4CK as part of our hockey family!”
