Spokane, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs are encouraging fans to bring in new or gently used winter hats, gloves and other winter clothing for women and children to receive either a $12 ticket to the Chiefs game on Sunday, November 27th or a “$5 off” voucher to the Team Store. All items will be donated to Catholic Charities’ St. Margaret’s Homeless Shelter. The Winter Warmth clothing drive will take place as the Chiefs host the Everett Silvertips on November 27th, presented by 92.9 ZZU. (Buy Tickets Here)
Fans can bring items to the Chiefs’ ticket office at Spokane Arena during regular business office hours prior to the game or to the game on Sunday, November 27th to receive the offer. Select Chiefs winter hats will also be on sale for those who would like to buy and donate at the door.
“This time of year always presents a struggle for many members of our community as they try to stay warm and sheltered,” Chiefs Director of Community Relations Alex Costanzo continued, “Any support the Chiefs family and fans can provide through donation of warm winter clothing will make a huge difference for people who need it most.”
Warm hats, gloves, dry socks and other winter clothing items are always in high demand at the shelter as many residents arrive with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Youth-sized hats and gloves are of special need.
