When Island Storm Fans come to the team’s game on February 28th they will notice the team bus parked in front of Eastlink Centre, lights flashing and volunteers from It Works! Global and Major Dan Roode from the Salvation Army ready to take donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
The event is called “Stuff the Bus” and it starts at 12 noon Sunday, two hours before the Island Storm take on the Moncton Miracles at Eastlink Centre. Everyone who brings a food item for our “Stuff the Bus” project gets a ballot for an opportunity to win one pair of VIP Courtside tickets to the Storm Friday, March 4th, home game. The draw for these tickets will be made at halftime during Sunday’s game.
The Salvation Army Food Bank in Charlottetown feeds up to 80 families a week. Major Dan Roode of the local Salvation Army says he is pleased with the partnership. "This idea is a slam dunk! Shooting hoops to stop hunger is another way of giving hope today to those less fortunate in our area. We are very grateful for the support the Island Storm & It Works have demonstrated in the past for the Salvation Army's food bank in Charlottetown, and look forward to another great day of helping hungry people."
Meanwhile, Darci Salerno of It Works! Global, a company with all natural products, approved by Health Canada, such as the botanically based body contouring wrap, supplements, and skincare lines says her group is also excited to be part of this event. “It Works! Global strives to make a lasting difference in communities locally and globally through financial, practical, and emotional support and "Stuff the Bus" is a great opportunity for us to make a meaningful difference in our community.”
Tickets for Sunday’s game is on sale now at Eastlink Centre Box Office.
