SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild fans can help those in need at the team's upcoming annual food drive in partnership with Twin Cities Toyota dealers.
At the Wild game on Saturday, Nov. 21, Second Harvest Heartland volunteers will be collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations at Gates 1-4 from 5:30 p.m. until the start of the first period. The Wild takes on the Nashville Predators that night at 7 p.m. at Xcel Energy Center.
For every $5 donated in the Minnesota Wild Toyota Food Drive, Second Harvest can provide 19 meals to the most vulnerable members of our community. Fans can also donate online at Second Harvest Heartland's website. Thanks to a group of generous private donors, gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total match of $25,000 through Nov. 26.
On Nov. 30, Twin Cities Toyota dealers will provide vehicles for the Wild to deliver donated food items to Second Harvest Heartland's Maplewood warehouse. Toyota is the official vehicle of the Minnesota Wild.
One in 10 households in Minnesota is affected by hunger. Hunger is an urban, suburban and rural problem. There is no corner of the state where hunger does not exist. Over the next three months, Second Harvest Heartland must distribute 15 million meals to hungry people including children, families and seniors through over 1,000 food shelves, pantries and other partner programs in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
