SUMMERSIDE – The Summerside Western Capitals are in the middle of their season-ticket campaign, and the MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) team is partnering with the Summerside Salvation Army Food Bank to help them stock the shelves.

The Caps have announced that every person who purchases a season-ticket package and brings in a non-perishable food item this week will receive an additional game-day ticket for their regular-season home opener against the Amherst Ramblers on Sunday, Oct. 5. Game time at Eastlink Arena is 7 p.m.

“The Salvation Army is a tremendous asset to the community,” said Caps chief executive officer Trent Birt. "We rely on thousands of fans to make our franchise successful.

“With this, we want to give back and this is a great way to form somewhat of a partnership with our fans and community as a whole to provide to an organization that gives to so many in need."

The Caps have done food drives during past seasons, but this will be the first time they have held one prior to the start of a season.

"The Capitals have supported a number of great causes in the past, and we want to not only continue these types of relationships but to grow them,” added Birt.

Items that are most needed at the Salvation Army Food Bank include boxed cereal, canned meats, hearty canned soups, granola bars, dried pasta, peanut butter, jams and even diapers for families in need.

The Capitals’ new business office in the main concourse of Credit Union Place is currently under renovations, so staff is located upstairs in Meeting Room 2. Season tickets can be purchased there, and non-perishable good can be dropped of there as well. Office hours are Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
