The Sudbury Wolves, in partnership with the Travelodge Hotel Sudbury, will host the second annual Have a Heart Give a Hat Campaign tonight (Dec. 8) at the Sudbury Arena.
Sudbury Wolves fans are asked to bring a new toque, pair of mittens, gloves, or scarf and donate the winter accessories. Better Beginnings Better Futures will distribute those items during their Coats for Kids Campaign and throughout the winter.
“Campaigns such as Have a Heart Give a Hat and Coats for Kids make a huge difference in improving the quality of lives for our youngest citizens and their parents," said Carole Dodge, director, Better Beginnings Better Futures. “I truly believe that those who receive will someday duplicate the thoughtfulness and the generosity. Assisting those who are less fortunate creates a chain of gratitude, joy and hope.”
Collection boxes will be located beside the Better Beginnings Better Futures display in the Lower Lobby near the Wolves Souvenir Shop in the Greater Sudbury Arena. Everyone is encouraged to drop off new winter accessories and receive a ticket for a prize valued at more than $300 from Travelodge Hotel Sudbury and the Sudbury Wolves. Travelodge Hotel Sudbury will also be giving away several other prizes throughout the game.
