The goals at Rampage home games this season will mean more than numbers on the scoreboard, as for the second year in a row Rampage goal scorers will once again be lending a hand to the Salvation Army thanks to the Prince Rupert Port Authority.
With the Prince Rupert Rampage home season about to begin, the Port announced on Friday that they have renewed their title sponsorship with the CIHL team, ready to offer their support for the 2013-14 season to the Rampage both on the ice and in the community.
In addition to their title sponsorship, the Port Authority is once again making a commitment to donate100 dollars for every Rampage home game goal through the 2013-14 season.
Last year the Port, through the goal scoring skills of the Rampage players donated $3,100 dollars to the Salvation Army. A donation that went helped with some of the Salvation Army's work in the community. The Salvation Army operates the city's only food bank, as well as providing for a soup kitchen and Christmas Hamper program.
