This time, Toews and Subban were among donors and attendees who helped Acho buy a liquor store in Chicago's Austin neighborhood to turn into a food mart. 

The group — which also included Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky, Bears tackle Charles Leno Jr. and White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito, among other pro athletes — put up $500,000 to help provide the area with the much-needed supplies.
