Bowdoin to Host "Skate With the Polar Bears" Food Drive Sunday

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's and women's ice hockey teams will host their annual "Skate With the Polar Bears" Food Drive this Sunday, December 12 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at Sidney J. Watson Arena. Open to the public, admission to the skating session is one non-perishable food item or paper product to be donated to the local food bank.

"The holiday season is when food banks need our help the most," says men's ice hockey head coach Terry Meagher. "The demands of the season dwindle their supplies and this is a way for us to help them replenish. In addition, we always have a great time spending time on the ice with the community. Its especially fun to see our young fans interact with their favorite players."

The free skate is open to all ages. Children are asked to bring a protective helmet.
