All fans that donate canned food at the Worcester Sharks game on November 17will receive a FREE ticket voucher to a future Sharks game compliments of Price Chopper. Collected food will go directly to the Friendly House of Worcester to be distributed to needy families throughout the Worcester area.
“The Worcester Sharks are pleased to partner with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, Friendly House, and Price Chopper again this season,” said Mudd. “It is important for everyone to assist those who are less fortunate, especially as we get ready for the holiday season.”
"I am looking forward to teaming up with the Worcester Sharks, Price Chopper, the Girl Scouts and the Friendly House for this year's Annual Food Drive. As the holiday season approaches especially during this difficult economic time, it is extremely important to do all we can to help those families in our community who may be less fortunate. The Food Drive has been an extremely successful annual event and we are determined to surpass our previous goals to help those families who may be in need," said Worcester County Sherriff Lewis G. Evangelidis.
Over 4,000 pounds of food was collected last season and the Sharks and Sherriff’s Office hope to surpass that goal this season.
