A pair of atom hockey team joined forces to help the food bank earlier this month.

Prior to a Dec. 8 atom A1 hockey game between the Semiahmoo Ravens and the South Delta Storm, the two teams challenged each other to see which could bring in the most food donations. The winning team was to receive free pizza from Fresh Slice Pizza – local businessman Jeff Copeland owns franchises in both White Rock and South Delta.

And in a fitting twist, both teams brought in the exact same amount – 245 non-perishable food items each, earning both teams free pizza.

South Delta’s donations went to their local food bank, while the Ravens’ non-perishables were sorted and donated to Sources’ White Rock-South Surrey Food Bank.
