Bring can of food to Breakers
The Salvation Army will be celebrating on Friday night regardless of whether the SkyCity Breakers win or lose their basketball game against the Adelaide 36’ers at the Vector Arena.
Crown Relocations and the Breakers have joined forces to help fill The Salvation Army’s food banks leading up to Christmas.
Star player CJ Bruton is urging fans to help by bringing a can of food to donate at the game as part of the Big Sallie Surprise fundraiser.
Fans can also bring gold coins to purchase a can and donate it back to the Sallies.
For every can sold by Crown, the Breakers will match it by donating a can of its own.
Salvation Army public relations director Shane Chisholm says many families need extra support during the festive season.
‘‘Sadly many families will do it tough this Christmas and more families than ever are seeking our support for the first time.’’
