Full props to Ottawa sports fans. Purolator’s ‘Tackle Hunger’ program stopped in the capital over the weekend. Fans were incredibly generous this weekend at TD Place, donating 43,754 pounds of food on Friday at the RedBlacks game and 9,200 pounds of food on Saturday at the Fury FC game. The goal was to collect 50,000 pounds of food in support of the Ottawa Food Bank by Saturday night. The final tally was 52,954 pounds!
On top of that, Senators fans added to the total on Sunday afternoon with donations at Sens Fan Fest at the Canadian Tire Centre.
Well done, Ottawa. Thank you.
