Penguins to Host 19th Annual “Score Against Hunger” Food Drive


I have also gotten away from posting the actual news releases from the Birds, as I sometimes think it is a bit impersonal. However, in the interest of getting info out there, I will again be hitting you with everything that I get…

The Penguins do an amazing job with their annual food drive… actually it is more a tribute to you who bring the non perishable foodstuffs. They seemingly get a bigger haul each and every year!

Here is the release…



PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Penguins will sponsor their 19th annual “Score Against Hunger” food drive on Wednesday, November 10 when the Penguins meet the Boston Bruins at the CONSOL Energy Center at 7:00 pm.

Every fan who brings a non-perishable food item to the game, or makes a cash donation that evening, will be eligible to win autographed Penguins’ memorabilia.

All food and money collected will be donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for distribution to needy people in the Pittsburgh area.  Fans are encouraged to participate in the food drive since the need to assist hungry people in the area has increased tremendously in the past few years.

Food and cash donations will be collected at the Trib Total Media & Verizon Gates from 6:00 pm through the first 10 minutes of the first period.

Penguins’ “Score Against Hunger” food drives have collected over 31,000 pounds of food and $28,000 in donations since 1992.
