NEXT HOME GAME: The league leading Sheffield Steelers are the visitors to Braehead Arena THIS SUNDAY (4:30pm face-off). Can we build on our 5-1 WIN over the Fife Flyers? Find out, book your tickets TODAY!
At THIS SUNDAY’s home game against the Sheffield Steelers (4:30pm face-off), the OSC (Official Supporters Club) and the Glasgow Clan have teamed-up to host a food bank drive for local foodbanks in West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare and Renfrewshire Foodbank.
Before face-off (doors are at 3:30pm) next to the OSC table in the Braehead Arena foyer, Glasgow Clan fans will be invited to donate cans, tins, jars and packets to help local families who are experiencing crisis.
Each foodbank provides emergency care packages which provides enough food to last a small family around three days.
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference.
The Glasgow Clan supporters, known as the Purple Army, are renowned for their generosity and this foodbank collection will no doubt be a huge success.
Clan Chief Operating Officer Gareth Chalmers commented: “In previous years we have held a food bank in either December or January, so when the OSC approached the club to do another, we had no hesitation in wanting to show our support. January is a tough period for everyone, especially with it being just after Christmas, so we thank the whole Purple Army for their support in advance of the drive.
“Special thanks must also go to the whole OSC committee who have organised this fantastic initiative.”
Mary Marra West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare commented: “It is a fantastic way to help support those who are going through a hard time, after Christmas it’s always particularly difficult for many families for a variety of reasons. This appeal is a huge boost to our supplies and it will allow us to help many, many people who are going through a really rough spell.”
