Volunteers from the Manitoba Association of Food Banks will be collecting donations at all entrances to Bell MTS Place.  If you forget, or prefer not to carry boxes and cans, tables will also be set up on the concourse to collect financial donations.

Anyone who gives a donation, food or cash, will be entered into a draw for an autographed Moose jersey or tickets to a future game.
