Reign Rallies for Japan
Changing the World One Pair at a Time
ONTARIO, Calif. – The Ontario Reign, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, have partnered with the Citizens Business Bank Arena to collect gently worn shoes for the victims of Japan through the Soles4Souls program.
Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that facilitates the donations of shoes. Shoe companies, retailers, and individuals can donate footwear (both new and used). The charity distributes these shoes to people in need worldwide.
Gently worn shoes for men, women, and children will be collected until April 9, 2011. Collection bins will be located at the main entrance at Citizens Business Bank Arena during events/games, or Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the administrative offices of both Citizens Business Bank Arena and the Ontario Reign. Please tie the shoes together or place them in a plastic bag. All shoes will be sent directly to Soles4Souls for distribution to the tsunami survivors in Japan.
For each donation made, you will receive a 10% off merchandise coupon to be redeemed at the remaining Reign games. The last three regular season Reign games are on Wednesday, March 30 against the Bakersfield Condors, Friday, April 1 and Saturday, April 2 against the Idaho Steelheads. All three games will have a 7:00 pm puck drop. Tickets are going fast, as Friday and Saturday’s games are almost sold out! Tickets start at $10 and can be purchased at the Citizens Business Bank Arena box office or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
