From Top Shelf To Food Shelf: Mind-Blowing Update

4 December 2015

I’m overwhelmed.

The pledges keep coming, I can barely keep up with the spreadsheet. There are some incredibly kind, generous, warm-hearted people in this world who follow college hockey. (Update! After night 1, we are at $797, 141 food/clothing items, and 1 ham!!!! That outstrips the cumulative total the past 2 years!!!)

Here is a list of the pledges so far. I will give a more specific update later including the organizations all these fine folks are supporting, but for now, I just want to spread some good cheer. There’s still plenty of time to make a pledge, and retroactive pledges are welcome. Keep spreading the word on social media, don’t forget to hashtag #FromTopShelfToFoodShelf!
