Fans are encouraged to bring these items to the Fulton Street plaza in front of Van Andel Arena from 5-7 p.m. (note that these are the only items that will be accepted): granola bars, fruit or applesauce cups/pouches, cracker packs, snack-size zipper bags, toasted oat cereal, cheese crackers and pretzels. Any fan who brings a food item from the list above or makes a $5 minimum cash donation on site will receive a coupon for a 21 oz. Pepsi product, redeemable at the arena’s concession stands during the game that night. All items collected during the evening will be loaded onto an MOS truck as they are donated and then given to Kids’ Food Basket.

Post-Game Jersey Auction: The Griffins’ Friday night jerseys will be autographed and auctioned off to the public after the game. The jersey auction will take place off the Griffins’ bench in sections 121 and 122.
