Mosaic Supports National Sports, Local Impacts
Mosaic recently announced a long-term partnership with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While our partnership was over a year in the making, teaming up with the current U.S. National Football League (NFL) Super Bowl Champions has highlighted an important element to why we partner with national sports teams - they help to build excitement with our employees throughout North America and help to make positive impacts in our communities.
|We are proud to be a long-standing partner with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Mosaic Stadium, one of the professional football teams and their home stadium in the Canadian Football League (CFL). Anyone in Saskatchewan knows our brand because of the positive impacts we have contributed to in the community - and that is something we want our employees to be proud of and to replicate in cities everywhere we operate.|
Five of our professional sports partnerships support programs are aimed at ending food insecurity. Tackles for Hunger, fueled by Mosaic is a commitment from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Mosaic to donate $10 each, per tackle to Feeding Tampa Bay, who will build and manage food pantries to help uplift communities throughout the region.
We also partner with the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Goals for Food program. Mosaic donates $500 for every goal scored and $5,000 for every hat trick earned. At the end of the season, the total is distributed among 14 area programs dedicated to ending food insecurity. The back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions have helped us donate more than $800,000 since the program began in 2013 - $49,000 in their 2020-2021 season alone!
The Hoops for Hunger program was designed in partnership with the Lakeland Magic - a National Basketball Association (NBA) G League developmental affiliate of the NBA's Orlando Magic - to help raise money for the KidsPACK and One More Child organizations. For every three-pointer made, we donate $150 to the program. To date, the partnership has raised over $50,000 to support youth in Florida.
In addition to these important partnerships in Tampa Bay, we also support the Regina Pats - Saves for Hunger and Moose Jaw Warriors - Points for Hunger programs; both part of Canada’s Western Hockey League (WHL). For every save made by the Regina Pats goalie, Mosaic donates $25 to Regina Education and Action Child Hunger (REACH), an organization dedicated to providing healthy meals and nutritional programing for Regina residents.
Mosaic has partnered with the Moose Jaw Warriors to support Hunger In Moose Jaw since 2015. Each year, a player is asked to take part in the campaign, and for every point they score, we donate $250. During the 2019-2020 regular season, forward Ryder Korczak was able to tally $16,750 toward Hunger In Moose Jaw.
While these partnerships help build our brand in the community by leveraging the popularity and reach of the local sports teams, we know that without enough food, people cannot thrive. These partnerships help raise awareness of the issue of food insecurity throughout the sports season and not just when the need is greatest. We have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to help. As a mission-driven organization, we want people to be proud of how we show up for the communities we live and operate in and around the world. And what better way to show your enthusiasm than being alongside your favorite sports team as a changemaker in our communities!
