In good times and bad, the mining industry is always known for giving back to its community. Earlier this year, the mining for miracles campaign raised a staggering $1,638,153 for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Building on that philanthropic momentum, we’re putting out a call to the mining industry to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society by participating in Five Hole for Food on July 20th. Only eight teams of five are guaranteed a spot to play in this round-robin style street hockey tournament on Granville Street dubbed “Mining for Food”. Even if you can’t field a team in this year’s tournament, we would love to have you come down and watch the event, bringing along some cash or non-perishable food items to donate to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Let’s continue the positive tradition of mining supporting our community.
