Fill the Ford

Ford and Fernie’s junior hockey team are working together to collect winter items for families in need.

Fernie Ford and the Ghostriders are teaming up again for the Fill the Ford campaign. Following a successful fundraising event this fall, Ford and Fernie’s junior hockey team are working together to collect winter items for families in need.

The goal is to fill up a Ford pickup truck with winter outerwear, gifts, and non-perishable items for the local food bank. The vehicle will be parked outside Fernie Memorial for three upcoming Ghostrider home games.

“Ford came up with the Fill the Ford idea and we moved forward with it,” explained Barry Wolff, Ghostriders Head Coach. “It’s an opportunity for the Ghostriders to help some people that are having a tough time. The community supports us so well it’s a chance for us to give back.”

He added, “We hope we can help some people have a Merry Christmas!”

The Ford pickup truck will be collecting donations on December 8, 14, and 21. The puck drops for each game at 7:30 p.m.
