Press Release sent to the World of Junior Hockey
PRINCE GEORGE, BC – The Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) are proud to team up with the St. Vincent de Paul Society for the Annual “Drop The Gloves and Sock It To ‘Em” night Saturday December 14th. For this game, fans are asked to bring new socks, mitts and toques wrapped in a plastic bag to be thrown on the ice immediately following the Spruce Kings first goal.
"We're so happy that the Spruce Kings have stepped forward to help us out again," said Bernie Goold, St. Vincent de Paul Society Coordinator. "We count on private and corporate donations to help us out through the year, but to have another non-profit society do this year after year really helps out; and in a very unique way too."
“This is an opportunity for the Spruce Kings to give back to the community through the generosity of our fans and business supporters,” said Spruce Kings Communications Director Ron Gallo. “There is a big need for contributions that will help keep people warm and fed during the colder months of the year in Prince George.”
Along with the clothing items, fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations for the Society. Clothing items are asked to be wrapped in a plastic bag to ensure there is no damage caused to the ice surface. Items will be collected and distributed to the needy in our community through the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
