Main Street Project (MSP) posted a photo on Friday evening of its clients taking in the Jets game while enjoying a pizza party.

pizzaparty"‪Our folks in shelter are having a pizza party and cheering on the Winnipeg Jets tonight!‬" the caption of the photos read.

The post quickly garnered a lot of love and attention from people on social media and has been shared over 100 times.

One of the comments read, "So wonderful for these folks to have a "normal" evening when each day is a struggle. Way to go MSP, you make these guys feel a part of a community that is sharing the same excitement. I love it!!!!!!. Nothing better than to feel included❤️"

And, many people seemed to agree.

Shortly after the post began to spread on social media, a GoFundMe was set up so MSP could continue to have the pizza parties during every game.

Originally with a goal of $1,000 that was quickly surpassed. Now the fundraiser has surpassed $3,000.

Trish Boggs is one of the people who donated towards the party.

"We're all Winnipeg Jets fans. I think it's such an exciting time in the city with the playoffs going on and everything. I just thought it would be important for all of us to be able to share in that, including others who don't have homes and are less fortunate."

Boggs says that when she first saw the post she couldn't help but smile. "That picture made me happy. To know that there are people out there who look after each other. That's really what we're here to do. Just to help out each other, look out for each other, and make each other's life just a little bit easier."

Boggs wasn't as excited about the outcome of last night's game, however. "We'll let them have one at home so they can have their fun too."

The Jets lead the series against the Minnesota Wild, 2-1. The two teams face off again Tuesday in St. Paul, MN. Thanks to the generosity of Winnipeggers the MSP will again be watching with plenty of pizza for everybody there.
