Jets Fans Pull Through with Donations, Cash for Winnipeg Harvest

Donations were accepted at entrances to the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party, where 2,700 lbs of food and nearly $3,500 in cash was collected.

“True to Winnipeg’s winning spirit, we at Winnipeg Harvest are absolutely thrilled at the outpouring of support from True North Sports + Entertainment and our community,” said Keren Taylor-Hughes, executive director, Winnipeg Harvest.

“Together, we can all be winners by bringing a tin for the bin and helping families in need in Winnipeg and Manitoba.”

Fans can still donate at tonight’s Manitoba Moose game at 7 p.m., Saturday’s Moose game at 4 p.m., as well as the Winnipeg Whiteout viewing party when the Jets play Game 5 in Nashville at 8:30 p.m.

Winnipeg returns to face the Predators again on Monday, where donations will be collected at the street party beginning at 6 p.m. Puck drop is at 8:30 p.m.
