Fort Sask Minor Hockey teams strived to Fill the Net for the local food bank on Saturday (Feb.3).
On a weekend filled with home games at the JRC, hopes were high for a great turnout.
"The idea for this particular fundraiser was initiated by a parent," said Shaun Weber, head coach of the Fort Saskatchewan Bantam A Rangers.
All involved thought that the fundraiser would be a great chance for minor hockey players to give back to their community.
After discussing the idea, Weber said the players quickly began to round up food to bring to the JRC.
"I think it's something that we could build on," Weber said regarding future opportunities for the players to make a difference in their community.
