Join us at the 24th annual Kitchener Rangers Don Cameron Potato Night this Friday at 7:30pm as we take on the Sarnia Sting. Potatoes and cash donations will be collected upon entrance to the game in support of the House of Friendship.
Each year, the House of Friendship uses more than 300,000 pounds of potatoes in its emergency food hampers and food assistance programs. When the potatoes run out, cash donations are used to buy more potatoes to meet ongoing needs.
If you are unable to attend the game, donations can be made online or at the House of Friendship Supermarket Blitz on February 8th from 9am-3pm.
The late Don Cameron spearheaded the initiative of fans bringing potatoes – inspired by his native Prince Edward Island – to provide meals and support to families in need in Waterloo Region.
Last season alone, Rangers fans donated the equivalent of just under 30,000 pounds of spuds to the House of Friendship; $6,456 in monetary donations and 4,007 pounds of potatoes. In the past 23 seasons overall, more than the equivalent of half a million pounds of potatoes has been raised.
Visit the House of Friendship website for more information on how you can help help fight hunger, poverty, homelessness and addiction in the region.
