Groundskeepers holding food drive

If you get a chance at some point this weekend, head down to Angel Stadium with non-perishable food items. It’s for a good cause, and it could be a lot of fun. Here’s some info from the Angels’ media-relations department …

WHO: The Angels’ Groundskeepers will host their 12th annual Thanksgiving Holiday Canned Food Drive from Friday, November 16th thru Sunday, November 18th at Angel Stadium of Anaheim (weather permitting). All proceeds will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County in the fight against hunger during the holiday season.

WHAT: Fans will have the opportunity to step up to the plate at Angel Stadium and take a swing for the fences. Donations of three cans of non-perishable food or $2 will be good for one swing against a pitching machine with a maximum of 20 pitches per participant. A donation of two canned food items or $1 per pitch will allow fans to test their pitching skills in the bullpen. Fans will also have the opportunity to shag fly balls in the outfield for a donation of $25 for 15 minutes. The Angels will provide bats, balls and helmets. The Angels Clubhouse Attendants will also provide a tour of the Clubhouse for a donation of $10.

WHEN: Friday, November 16th thru Sunday, November 18th at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Hours for the food drive will be 8AM – 4PM.

WHERE:  Participants will enter Angel Stadium through Gate #1 and proceed to the Field Level.

MISC: Those who are unable to attend, but would like to make a monetary donation, may send checks to: Second Harvest Food Bank, 8014 Marine Way, Irvine, CA 92618 or visit their website at:
