Royals raising funds for food bank

The Victoria Royals hope hockey fans will bring more than their enthusiasm to this Sunday’s game.

The Victoria Royals hope hockey fans will bring more than their enthusiasm to this Sunday’s game.

The Royals have teamed up with Island Savings to help raise funds for the Mustard Seed. All cash donations will be accepted by Island Savings employees and donated to the food bank during the Nov. 20 game against the Kelowna Rockets.

“Thanks to the buying power we have as a food bank, a $1 donation is able to provide the equivalent of three meals a day to a child in Victoria,” said Allan Lingwood, the Mustard Seed’s director of development in a release.

“We’re really able to stretch these dollars to supply families in need with perishable items of staples that aren’t commonly donated — so cash donations are incredibly important.”

Earlier this week, Royals players presented the food bank with a $3,500 cheque — funds raised during last season’s Stop Hunger campaign — to kick off the fundraising campaign.

Puck drop for this Sunday’s game is at 7:05 p.m at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.
