Griffins Game Tonight Hopes to Benefit Kids’ Food Basket
The Grand Rapids Griffins are home tonight at the Van Andel Arena, playing Cleveland. It’s a big game as they try to secure first place in the division before the playoffs begin.
It’s also a big game because the Griffins want to help Kids’ Food Basket!
Michigan Office Solutions staff will be outside the arena collecting items for Kids’ Food Basket starting at 6 p.m. Kids’ Food Basket’s Wish List includes: toasted oat cereal, cheese crackers, pretzel twists, cracker packs, granola bars, fruit cups, and snack-size zipper lock bags. If you don’t have any one of these items to bring to the game, Meijer has donated a pallet of toasted oat cereal that you can buy before the game to donate to Kids’ Food Basket tomorrow night.
Kids’ Food Basket is a 100% charitably-funded program, providing Sack Suppers to nearly 7,500 kids at 42 schools in Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Holland. More than 240 volunteers each day help prepare, pack and deliver Sack Suppers, a well-rounded evening meal. Through the Sack Supper program, kids get well-balanced evening meals, filling a gap that schools and families often can’t meet.
