Mosaic Points for Hunger
The Moose Jaw Warriors and The Mosaic Company are excited to continue their partnership with the “Points for Hunger” campaign in support of Hunger In Moose Jaw. Throughout the 2018 – 2019 regular season, for every point that Warriors forward Justin Almeida gets, home and away, Mosaic will donate $250 to Hunger In Moose Jaw.
“I’m honoured to be involved in the “Points for Hunger” campaign this season and joining past players Brayden Point, Noah Gregor, and Jayden Halbgewachs to help students in our community,” said Warrior Justin Almeida. “Hearing about students missing out on something as simple as lunch is absolutely heartbreaking. Not only will I do my best to try and raise money for this program but I think it’s important to bring awareness to the work that Hunger in Moose Jaw does for our students.”
“I’d like to say thank you to the Mosaic Company for teaming up with myself and the Warriors as we try to end hunger in our city. Knowing that every point that I earn this season goes to help Hunger in Moose Jaw is a privilege and I look forward to the challenge of making Mosaic pay as much as I can,” Almeida added jokingly.
“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.
“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 Justin 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 Justin Almeida 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.
