On January 21, as the Boston Bruins took on the Winnipeg Jets, GBFB volunteers and team members were at TD Garden selling tickets for the 50/50 raffle. Fans were out in full force, and the raffle resulted in enough funds for GBFB to provide 11,276 meals for those in need.
The Boston Bruins Foundation has been a valued partner to GBFB since 2007. GBFB was given the opportunity to participate in the 50/50 raffle after receiving a grant for our School-based Pantry program, which provides fresh, healthy food to children and families in need.
In addition, the Boston Bruins Foundation has supported GBFB’s Banquet, provided in-kind donations, and volunteered at several events and direct service programs, including Kids Cafe and Chain of Giving.
