Blues Host Food Drive for Tornado Victims
 
ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues players TJ Oshie, Barret Jackman, Ben Bishop, Tyson Strachan, Carlo Colaiacovo, Alex Pietrangelo and Philip McRae are teaming up with the United Way of Greater St. Louis and St. Louis Area Foodbank to host a food drive to support families in Joplin affected by the recent tornado.

The food drive will be held on Wednesday, June 1 at Scottrade Center from 4 – 7 p.m.  KSHE 95's Favazz will broadcast live from Scottrade Center during the drive.

Fans can drop donated items off at the 14th & Clark Street entrance. The players will be on hand to collect items and greet fans during this time. All fans that donate will receive a free ticket to a 2011 Blues preseason game. In addition, for a small donation, fans can also have their photo taken on the Olympia, which will be parked in front of the building (weather permitting). For a $10 donation, you'll receive a commemorative photo, or bring your own camera and take the photo for a $5 donation.

Northern Edge Hockey in Chesterfield will serve as an alternate drop-off point, for those in West St. Louis County who may not be able to make it downtown.
