MUSKEGON, Mich. – With Thanksgiving and the holiday season approaching, the Muskegon Lumberjacks are joining the effort to provide for the less fortunate among us – and they invite their fans to help.
The Lumberjacks ask their supporters to bring non-perishable food items to their upcoming games on Friday, Dec. 2 and Saturday, Dec. 3 at L.C. Walker Arena. The Jacks organization has teamed up with Cans From Fans, who will collect the items this weekend and distribute them to local food pantries.
Any fan who contributes three (3) or more items will receive a free ticket to the Lumberjacks’ matchup with the Indiana Ice on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 5:15 p.m.

Inspired by local marketing agency RC Productions, Cans From Fans is a non-profit organization that facilitates food drives in the greater Muskegon area. Visit cansfromfans.com for more information on non-perishable food items to contribute.
The Lumberjacks host the Youngstown Phantoms Dec. 2-3, with both games starting at 7:15 p.m. Gates open at 6 p.m. for the Friday game, which is $1 Beer/$1 Hot Dog Night presented by John Morrell (while supplies last). The fun continues Saturday evening as it will be Star Wars Night!
