Hockey game supports the Food Bank




December 1, the Abitibi Eskimos will be playing the Sudbury Nickel barons at the Tim Horton Event Centre. 

The game starts at 7:30 p.m. and the admission is $5 or a non-perishable food item. All the proceeds will be going to the Cochrane Food Bank.


The game was purchased by an anonymous person here in Cochrane. Caisse Populaire was going to make a donation to the game but the anonymous buyer asked that instead they make the donation to the Food Bank.


Gilles Belanger from Caisse Populaire presented Claude Rocheleau, the Food Bank manager with a cheque of $500 on Monday, November 19.


“It’s very kind and generous from the Caisse Populaire and the anonymous donor,” said Rocheleau. He said this only proves once again how generous the people in Cochrane are.


If anybody else would like to make a donation to the Food Bank they can contact Mr. Rocheleau at 272-4300.
