Angels' Canned Food Drive set for Rangers series

DETROIT -- The Angels, in conjunction with Wells Fargo, will hold their 16th annual Canned Food Drive during the upcoming weekend series against the Rangers at Angel Stadium.

Those who donate canned or non-perishable food will receive a team photo, with a chance to win tickets and autographs. The food drive will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, which will have volunteers with collection bins posted in front of the Home Plate Gate and inside Gates 1 and 4 two hours before game time and through the second inning.

Those who donate 10 or more food items, or $10 or more, will be entered to win autographed Angels items. Each day, the first 150 donors of 10-plus food items, or at least $10, will receive two tickets to an upcoming Angels home game.

For every dollar donated by Angels fans, Wells Fargo will match up to $5,000.

"We are thrilled to team up with Wells Fargo for the second year in a row on this event," Angels chairman Dennis Kuhl said in a statement. "As members of our community, we have a responsibility to help those in need. This event allows everyone to get involved and give to those less fortunate than ourselves."
