Minor Hockey Team Stocks Food Shelves
Submitted By Charlene on Monday, January 10, 2011
The Stouffville minor midget AE Clippers took their competitive drive out of the arena and into their community, with a team food drive to help those less fortunate during the holiday season.  Challenged by their coach, Brent McIntosh, each player brought non-perishable food items to the Clipper Complex for a weigh-in before the team practice Dec. 18.  

Coach McIntosh gave added incentive by donating a new premium hockey stick to be awarded to the player who brought in the most food by weight.  
Given the high stakes involved, industrial-grade electronic weigh scales were generously loaned by Scale Services and Sales in Markham, to keep a reliable tally.  
All players kept their competitive edge, as  the team contributed more than a half tonne of food, which was picked up by members of the Whitchurch-Stouffville Fire and Emergency Services, who joined the team and coaches for a photograph to celebrate the moment.
