It might have been a cold day for a bar­be­cue Satur­day, De­cem­ber 2, but the ef­forts of two lo­cal hockey play­ers are sure to warm the heart.

Thomas and Ni­cholas Chapin, sons of Cam and Marnee play for FunTeam and RecTeam. On Sun­day, Novem­ber 27, the team held its 23rd an­nual Char­ity Games. This is where play­ers bring in food dona- tions for The Sal­va­tion Army Food Bank. To un­der­line the true mean­ing of giv­ing, or­ga­niz­ers don’t sim­ply ask for a do­na­tion, but rather en­cour­age each of the play­ers to go out and earn what they wish to do­nate.

For the Chapin boys, this meant man­ning a bar­be­cue at Fre­son Bros last Satur­day. They were able to earn $370. They also re­ceived more dona­tions and in to­tal had $676.30 On Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 7 Thomas and Ni­cholas Chapin went on a shop­ping spree at Fre­son Bros with funds they raised through dona­tions and bar­be­cue, to be do­nated to the Sal­va­tion Army. At the to go on a shop­ping spree Fre­son Bros.

On Wed­nes­day evening, De­cem­ber 7, they were able to stuff three shop­ping carts full of gro­ceries and ne­ces­si­ties to be do­nated to The Sal­va­tion Army.

This is the third time the duo has done this to sup­port The Sal­va­tion Army food bank and are grate­ful to Fre­son Bros. for the op­por­tu­nity and the com­mu­nity for its sup­port. at
