Donate a pair of winter gloves and score a ticket to Hawks game

With the uncharacteristically mild temperatures as of late, you may be entertaining the idea of stowing away heavy coats, scarfs, etc.

But hold up — it’s only mid-January!

And although we aren’t experiencing the infamous ‘Snowpocalypse’ like last winter, Mother Nature is a sneaky creature.

After all, even a quick trip to the mailbox sans gloves would have left your digits frigid a few weeks ago.

During the cold months, it’s a struggle to keep toasty, and so much more difficult when you yourself are struggling.

To help those who are in need of keeping warm, the Boise Hawks have announced their fourth annual Glove Drive to benefit the Salvation Army Boise Corps.

Donations of new winter gloves can be made at the Hawks front office at Memorial Stadium, 5600 N. Glenwood St., Garden City, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For each new pair of winter gloves donated, fans will receive a complimentary reserved seat ticket for the Boise Hawks opening night game on June 20 against Salem-Keizer.

“The Hawks are proud to continue this program for a fourth straight year,” said Hawks’ General Manager Bob Flannery. “Through the combined efforts with our fan base, we hope to help those in need stay warm this winter.”

Donations will be accepted through Thursday, Feb. 1.
