Once again, the Albany Devils and Price Chopper have teamed to support the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York with a “Thanksgiving Food Drive.” Devils fans are encouraged to donate nonperishable items during home games on Nov. 1, 2, 12, 21 and 23. By contributing, patrons will receive a free ticket voucher to the Nov. 26 contest at Times Union Center.
Albany will battle Bridgeport (twice), Portland, Syracuse and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton during the five dates. The Nov. 26 game is against Hartford. Tickets for the games can be purchased at the Times Union Center box office or at any Ticketmaster outlet. Fans can also buy tickets via charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000 or online at ticketmaster.com.
The Regional Food Bank, the only organization of its kind in Northeast New York, has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in the area since 1982. The Food Bank collects large donations of food and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties. The Food Bank provides over 22 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies.
