Friday is the second annual Community Backpack Project Night sponsored by Skyline
Friday, December 1st is the second annual Community Backpack Project Night sponsored by Skyline Group of Companies at the Sleeman Centre as the Storm host the Windsor Spitfires.
Friday’s game against the Spitfires will feature a ceremonial puck drop to honour just a few of the many Hope House volunteers that made the Backpack Project a success again in 2023.
Over the summer, the Guelph Storm partnered with Hope House to support their Community Backpack Project. Each year, Hope House Guelph coordinates a school supply drive to provide children with the tools they need for a successful school year. The Storm were pleased to collect 280 backpacks in support of the initiative. Those who donated backpacks to the Storm Office and Mark Wilson’s Better Used Cars received a pre-paid ticket voucher to Friday’s game courtesy of Skyline.
Tickets to Friday’s game can be purchased online here or at the Storm box office by calling 519-837-9690 or in person at 50 Woolwich Street, Guelph, ON.
