The Manitoba Moose dropped the sticks and picked up aprons this morning as they served breakfast at Siloam Mission.

Around 30 Manitoba Moose players and staff crammed into Siloam Mission's new kitchen and dining facility to serve breakfast to the less fortunate.

"We have some guys hanging out with them and talking with them," said Mason Appleton, a centre for the Manitoba Moose. "And there are other guys in the kitchen cooking up the food and serving it."

The team arrived around 8:30 a.m. to serve breakfast at 9:00 a.m. After instructions from the Siloam staff and a quick prayer, the windows opened and the players handed out breakfast.

"It's really great that they have come in today," said Chris Buffington, food services manager with Siloam Mission. "It's great to see the community support we are getting from them."

The event wrapped up the 'Share the Warmth' campaign between the Manitoba Moose and Red River Co-op. The November 19th 'Share the Warmth' game brought in around 400 pounds of clothing, while Red River Co-op locations around the city received upwards of 800 pounds. That clothing was presented to Siloam today to help clothe the homeless during the winter months.

"Sometimes you don't really realize how fortunate you are," Appleton said. "It's great to give back. We're blessed and we're really enjoying it as well."

The Moose will be back in the BellMTS Centre this Saturday when they take on the Milwaukee Admirals. It's the 'Teddy Bear Toss' game, so fans are invited to bring a new plush toy to the rink. During the first intermission, fans can toss their toys on the ice, where they will be collected and donated to the Christmas Cheer Board.

It's a great time to go to a Moose game. They are tied with the Toronto Marlies for first in the league and are currently on a nine-game winning streak.
