To the editor:
The Houghton JV Hockey Team would like to thank everyone who helped make our bagging and can drive at Econo Foods a huge success.
First of all, thank you to Econo Foods for giving us this fundraising opportunity. Colin and Jason did a great job training the players, the service desk handled our can and bottle returns with a smile, and Keith patiently counted our cash donations.
Secondly, thank you to all of the customers who made cash contributions and/or donated their receipts. We were also pleasantly surprised by the amount of can and bottle returns we received. We are fortunate to live in such a generous community. The success of our program depends on it.
Finally, thanks to Coach Joe for giving up his Saturday afternoon to help with the can drive. It was great that you saved all of your cans and bottles just for us!
Our JV hockey program is a self-funded sport and we truly appreciate everyone's support.
