Bowdoin Hosts "Skate With the Polar Bears Food Drive"

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's ice hockey team will host their annual "Skate With the Polar Bears" Food Drive this Sunday, February 5 from 1-3 p.m. at Dayton Arena. Admission to the open skating session is one non-perishable food item or paper product to be donated to the local food bank.

"Right after the New Year is when our food banks need help the most," according to head coach Terry Meagher. "The holidays 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 Polar Bear men's and women's teams are both ranked in the latest national polls, with the women standing ninth in the nation and men ranked 14th.
