The Sabres and their fans have combined to feed a lot of hungry people in Western New York.
The Sabres' annual Thanksgiving food drive this morning brought in 2,220 turkeys weighing more than 44,000 pounds. The turkeys will be donated to the Buffalo City Mission and the Food Bank of Western New York.
Fans received two tickets to an upcoming game for each 20-pound turkey they donated.
"For the second year in a row, we are amazed by the generosity of Western New Yorkers,” said Sabres President Ted Black, whose team collected more than 1,700 turkeys weighing 34,000 pounds last year. “With the holiday season upon us, there is always a critical need at the Buffalo City Mission and the Food Bank of Western New York to help the neediest members of our region, and the response was tremendous."
