The Sarnia Jr. Sting U-12 ‘AA’ team was able to donate more than 600 items to the Inn of the Good Shepherd, after collecting non-perishables at their home games this month.
The players helped deliver the goods to the Inn, where they were able to take a tour, see the inner-workings of the food bank, how impactful it is to the community, and how they can help families in need. They learned about the grocery system, and the tough decisions families must make between food or hygiene items.
The players were also on hand as volunteers worked to make a large dinner for the community that evening.
The team was happy to see how many local businesses support the Inn by donating their food, daily. They learned a humbling lesson on what is essential, and to not take things for granted.
The team is honoured to represent Sarnia and jump at the chance to give back to the community they are proud of, in any way they can.
