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 2019 – 2020 regular season, for every point that Warriors forward Brayden Tracey gets, home and away, Mosaic will donate $250 to Hunger In Moose Jaw.
“I’m excited and honoured to be involved with this year’s “Points for Hunger” campaign. Knowing that students miss out on something as simple as lunch is heartbreaking,” said Warrior Brayden Tracey. “Not only am I going to do my best to try and raise money for the program, but I think it’s just as important to bring awareness to Hunger in Moose Jaw and everything they do to help students in our city.”
“I know that the Points for Hunger program started with Brayden Point and was continued on by others including Jayden Halbgewachs and Justin Almeida,” Tracey added. “I’d like to say thank you to the Mosaic Company for allowing me to come on board this season and join those amazing players who’ve helped out in the past. I’d also like to apologize to Mosaic because I’m going to be trying my hardest to make them pay as much as I can,” he said 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” highlights 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.
