WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Jets are celebrating a win Saturday, and the success of their first annual food drive with donations going toward Winnipeg Harvest.
A total of 23,679 lbs. of food were collected before Saturday’s game between the Jets and the St. Louis Blues.
“It goes to a great cause, it goes to Winnipeg Harvest which is a great organization for our community,” Rob Wozny with True North said.
Bins were set up throughout MTS Centre for fans to bring non-perishable food items to the game.
“Winnipegers came out and did a great job to support this campaign for the Winnipeg Jets annual food drive,” Wozny added.
The Jets beat the Blues 5-3, improving to 22-23-4 on the season.
