Mosaic Points for Hunger
The Moose Jaw Warriors and The Mosaic Company are excited to announce the return of the “Points For Hunger” in support of Hunger In Moose Jaw. Throughout the 2016-2017 regular season, for every point that Warriors forward Noah Gregor gets, home and away, Mosaic will donate $250 to Hunger In Moose Jaw. While Noah is out Jayden Halbgewachs will continue adding to the total.
“Last season is was amazing watching Brayden (Point) create excitement and awareness for Hunger In Moose Jaw with this campaign,” commented Gregor. “I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the program this year, and I first wanted to say thank you to Mosaic for their support of the Warriors and Hunger in Moose Jaw. To be able to help raise money and awareness for a group that does so much for kids in our city is a great honour.”
This marks the second year of the “Points For Hunger” campaign, last year with former Captain Brayden Point leading the way, Mosaic donated $30,000 to Hunger In Moose Jaw to help in the funding of the “Growing Tomorrow’s Minds” Program.
“The amazing support of the Mosaic Company for an initiative of this nature is truly overwhelming,” commented Warriors Director, Business Operations Corey Nyhagen. “Being able to have our fans get behind and cheer on Noah while he pushes to raise money and awareness for such an important cause right here at home makes it that much more special.”
“Mosaic has worked alongside the Warriors for over five seasons to support Hunger in Moose Jaw’s Child Nutrition Program. We’ve had a number of talented young men champion the partnership during this time and are excited that Noah Gregor will be continuing the tradition,” said Mosaic’s Senior Director, Public Affairs, Sarah Fedorchuk. “At Mosaic, our mission is to help the world grow the food it needs, so investing in local food security programs, like Points for Hunger, connects to the work we do every day to achieve this mission,” she adds.
“Growing Tomorrow’s Minds” is a child nutrition program that provides children with nutritious lunches every school day, which are a vital part of a child performing well in the classroom. Not only does the program fuel learning at school, “Growing Tomorrow’s Minds” showcases the importance of nutrition and healthy eating, drawing awareness to the fact that there are children who go hungry in our city.
