Bring can of food to Break­ers

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

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.’’
