Eagles score off the ice for Langley Food Bank

In the time it takes to play a hockey game, a team of 11 and 12-year-olds collected 363 pounds of food and $375 for food bank

The Langley atom A4 Eagles know what they are capable of on the ice. And now they know what they can do off the ice as well.

The Langley Minor Hockey Association team  spent a recent Saturday (Nov. 23) afternoon going door-to-door collecting food and money donations for the Langley Food Bank.

And in just over an hour — the same time it takes to play a hockey game, minus the stoppages in play — the team of 10 and 11-year-olds managed to collect 363 pounds of food and $375.

“We wanted to do something to give back to the community who gives gives us a lot of support and we wanted the players to be involved,” explained team manager Christine Hylands, who co-ordinated the activity.

“It was wonderful to see how excited the boys were with every can, every box, and every dollar they received.

“They really learned the power of working together as a team.”
