Windsor Spitfires Want You to Drop Your Gloves for Those in Need – Sally Ann and Spitfires spread warmth one pair at a time

The Salvation Army and the Windsor Spitfires are gearing up for the second annual Drop Your Gloves. There will be bins located around the rink for those who wish to donate new, adult size gloves and socks when the Spitfires host the Ottawa 67s on Thursday, February 22rd, 2018. Game time is scheduled for 7:05pm at the WFCU Centre.

“Gloves and socks are often the most needed clothing items but the least donated. One in ten Canadians live in poverty. Gloves and socks are a luxury that not all of us have,” says Shannon Wise, Public Relations & Development Representative for The Salvation Army. “Drop Your Gloves is another way to help raise awareness around the issue of poverty in Windsor.”

The donations from Drop Your Gloves will go to The Salvation Army Windsor Community and Rehabilitation Centre.

Be sure to check out the IPM facebook page, we’ll be giving away tickets for this game.
