HAWKS FOR HUNGER 

Good Day Hawks Families and Community Supporters,

Most are aware of the excellent work that The Exchange and its staff does for the Caledon Community, including housing our Food Bank and taking care of those who require assistance.  Well, during these unprecedented times, the need for community assistance has never been greater.  The Food Bank shelves need filling as more and more people are requiring assistance to put food on their tables.  With the holiday season here, the Caledon Hawks would normally be posing for team pictures and in turn, participating in our annual Food Drive – HAWKS FOR HUNGER.  This year, there are no pictures, no games, heck, right now we don’t even have hockey.  But we are going to continue to do our part.  The HAWKS FOR HUNGER program is one of the largest food bank donors each year and we want to help.  This year, we have teamed up with some familiar faces to try and spread that assistance even further and there are many great ways you can now get involved and support HAWKS FOR HUNGER. 

Here are the ways you can support the program this year:

 

  1. Cash Donations will be processed directly through the Food Bank website this season.  Please navigate to Donate Now - CALEDON COMMUNITY SERVICES (canadahelps.org)Once you are on this page, please choose Santa Fund 2020 as your donation choice, and in the Message Box, please type: HAWKS FOR HUNGER.  Please note that this year, Scotiabank will be matching cash donations made in support of HAWKS FOR HUNGER so it is important that we identify the donations on this page.  Any support here is greatly appreciated.
  1. Drive-Thru Food Donation Event – Saturday December 5, 2020.  CMHA is pleased to partner with the legendary Paul Coffey and Access Storage for this event.  From 10AM to 1PM Access Storage will be accepting food donations on behalf of HAWKS FOR HUNGER.  In turn, Access Storage and Paul Coffey will make a donation to HAWKS FOR HUNGER that is based on the turnout and donations that are received.  SEE ATTACHED POSTER FOR DETAILS.  For this event, please send and RSVP email to [email protected] with the time you wish to attend and drop off your donation. Again, be sure to tell them it is for HAWKS FOR HUNGER. Each visitor will receive an autographed mini stick or ornament from Paul Coffey and some swag from Scotiabank.  Cash donations will also be accepted at this location.  Again, the poster is attached below with all details. 
  1. If you are unable to make it over to Access Storage in the morning, there is another Drive-Thru event happening on Saturday afternoon.  This event is taking place at Albion Fairgrounds/Bolton Arena from 1PM-3PM.  Paul Coffey will be present at this event at 115PM to mingle and also there will be an opportunity for a Photo with Santa.  A minimum of 5$ or food donation is required.  If you are attending this event, please let them know your donation is part of the HAWKS FOR HUNGER program.
  1. Lastly, if you are unable to make either of the events on Saturday, and prefer not to donate online, you may still drop off food donations or gift cards/cash donations directly at The Exchange.  When doing so, please call The Exchange ahead of time to schedule a drop off time with them to ensure they can accept your donation and when you arrive to drop it off, make sure you let them know it is part of the HAWKS FOR HUNGER program.

Our hockey community has always proven to rise to the occasion when our fellow citizens are in need of assistance and are always generous with their time and donations.  I am confident that if we all work together, we can make a huge impact on The Exchange and the Food Bank and their Santa Fund Program this year to ensure those in our community are able to provide for themselves and their families during the holiday season and through the winter.

The CMHA Executive thanks you in advance for your donations and support of the HAWKS FOR HUNGER program.

Best wishes for the holidays and we hope to see you all back on the ice soon!
