SOUP KITCHEN - JAN 2012

Raiders Give Back
January 22, 2012

The Raiders Junior Hockey Club continues to live up to the promise of giving back to the community.

For the second time, members of the Raiders, the coaching staff and executive rolled up their sleeves
and spent the afternoon with Steve and Ruth Chipman at the Immaculate Conception Parish Soup Kitchen
in Winnipeg's North End. The Raiders bought the food and under the guidance of church volunteers, they served meals, helped clean up, and visited with some of the local community who are a little down on their luck.

This is the kind of community commitment that the team promised would happen, and is part of the
Raider mission to build more than just talented hockey players but to develop quality young men.

"Just as we are of their accomplishments on the ice, we continue to be even prouder of what our players
do off the ice, " said Raider President and GM Ned Sanders.  "These are lessons that last a lifetime - our players realize how fortunate they are - they want us to be a part of this community and they want us to give back every chance we get."

With a great team turnout, and the appreciation of the church, the Raiders are building solid community connections. Sanders said this could even become an annual team event.

Way to go Raiders!
