EAGLES !! -- ONLY TWO MONTHS TO GO!!!!  
Did you know that more than half the visitors to our local food banks are children? No child should ever be hungry.

Thanks a “Million”, Burlington!

Please, help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary

We are proud to announce that Burlington Fire Chief Tony Bavota will be the Honourary Chair of the Gift of Giving Back for 2015.  Thanks so much Chief Bavota, for your help this year and welcome again, Burlington Firefighters – we are so proud to be working with you !!

Last November, we raised 281,878.31 lbs of food for the needy in our community -- over 140 tons of food for the Carpenter Hospice, Halton Women’s Place, Partnership West and The Salvation Army.  Also, we made a very generous donation to Burlington Flood Relief.  In terms of dollar value this represents over $700,000 in those two evenings alone. It’s incredible really, what a hockey community can do when people pull together!

To date we have raised an astonishing 1,036,879.84 lbs – over A MILLION POUNDS of food for our community. 

And all this was accomplished, item-by-item, by the willing hands and generous hearts of our young HOCKEY PLAYERS !!

As in past years, we have joined with our partners, the Salvation Army, Partnership West Food Bank, Halton Women’s Shelter and the Carpenter Hospice.  We are also partnering with our wonderful hosts from last year, Nelson High School!! Go Nelson!!!

This year we are also adding the Compassion Society.

Our organizations, with the shared goals of helping the less fortunate, will work in concert to build upon each other’s work, achieve better results and deliver more services to those in need. Working together, we will make positive changes to our City.

Our annual “Gift of Giving Back” Community Food Drive strengthens our community and our hockey club in many different ways.  It not only enables us to give a sizeable donation back to our community, but also, more importantly, it helps us to highlight with the youth of our community, societal issues of poverty, homelessness and hunger. This campaign also makes our young people aware of the hardworking local organizations that provide services for those people in need. Through these experiences, we aim to encourage them to live life as engaged and active citizens who understand the power and satisfaction of giving back.

Please celebrate our 10th Anniversary !!  TEAMS, WE ARE COUNTING ON YOU – PLEASE POST YOUR VIDEOS AND PICTURES ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER!!  Let’s all get pumped!!!

“Only Two Months to Go"

Go Eagles!! – Show your heart!
