News | 11/14/2013 5:06:43 PM | ROCHESTER AMERICANS


The Rochester Americans announced today the team will hold a Food Drive during each of its next three home games to benefit Foodlink, the regional food bank. The Food Drive will take place during the Amerks home games on Wednesday, Nov. 20 versus the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins; Friday, Nov. 22 versus the Utica Comets; and Wednesday, Nov. 27 versus the Hamilton Bulldogs. All three games begin at 7:05 p.m. at The Blue Cross Arena.
 
Fans are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items by dropping them off in collection bins in front of The Blue Cross Arena Box Office, located in the lower atrium, prior to each of the next three games. The items will then be donated to Foodlink. 

Any fan that donates two unopened, non-perishable food items in the Foodlink bins located at the Box Office windows prior to any of the next three home games will be eligible to purchase “Buy One-Get One Free” tickets to any of the aforementioned games.

Later this month, members of the Amerks will assist Foodlink in sorting and packaging food at their warehouse prior to Thanksgiving.
 
About Foodlink: Foodlink, the regional food bank, provides food, nutrition, education and resources in Western and Central New York. As a member of Feeding America, Foodlink rescues and redistributes over 13 million pounds of food to 450 human service agencies.
