November 15, 2012 - United States Hockey League (USHL) - Youngstown Phantoms News Release

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Youngstown Phantoms and 21 WFMJ are partnering to raise food donations for the Mahoning Valley's less fortunate this Holiday Season. The Phantoms will hold a food drive to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank ahead of their game Friday, Nov. 23 vs. the Team USA as part of WFMJ's "Project: Feed Our Valley" initiative, the club announced today.

The Phantoms will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items at the Covelli Centre box office in the days leading up to the "Black Friday" Food Drive, and Second Harvest Food Bank will be on-hand beginning at 6 p.m. the night of the game to collect all of the donations.

Fans who donate two or more non-perishable food items will receive a $6 ticket voucher that can be redeemed for a purple or green level ticket to the Nov. 23 game - a savings of up to $9. The game time is set for 7:15 p.m. EST.

The Covelli Centre box office will be open to accept food donations and exchange ticket vouchers from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19 through Wednesday, Nov. 21. The box office will be closed for Thanksgiving, but re-open Friday, Nov. 23 at 4 p.m. for donations ahead of the food drive. For more information, call 330.747.7825.

"Project: Feed Our Valley" is a campaign to educate people about hunger in our community and raise vital donations of food and money for Second Harvest Food Bank. Since the launch of "Project: Feed Our Valley" in 2007, the Food Bank has gone from feeding more than 7,000 people a week in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties, to feeding more than 14,000. But, our Valley has responded to the need by donating almost $290,000 and nearly 330,000 pounds of food in that time.

Season tickets for the 2012-13 season are on sale now starting at the low price of just $7 a game. Benefits include invitations to exclusive season ticket holder events, discounts at the Phantoms Team Shop, playoff priority and much more. Call 330.747.PUCK (7825) for more information or to reserve seats today.
