ST. PAUL-This Thanksgiving, the Minnesota Wild will team up with youth hockey tournaments throughout the state, including the Northern Lakes Lightning Youth Hockey Association PeeWee C tournament at the Breezy Point Arena, to expand the reach of the team's annual food drive.

The Minnesota Wild State of Hockey Food Drive will begin Nov. 23 when the Wild takes on the Winnipeg Jets at 6 p.m. at Xcel Energy Center. Second Harvest Heartland volunteers will collect non-perishable food items and cash donations at Gates 1-4 from 4:30 p.m. until the start of the first period.

From Nov. 25-27, 22 youth hockey tournaments, including the NLLYHA, will be accepting donations to help stock local food banks and food shelves. Bins will be distributed by Second Harvest Heartland and local food banks to all host rinks. Teams and spectators are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items.

Fans may also make a monetary donation online at wild.com/fooddrive. For every $1 donated, Second Harvest Heartland and food banks serving Minnesota can provide up to four meals to the most vulnerable members of our community.
