Annual charity game aids local food aid non-profit

The fourth annual MAUL/SWURL holiday charity game raised $800 and over 400 non-perishable food items for Bridges to Hope.

The St. John’s-based non-profit organization offers several programs aimed at providing food aid assistance to citizens in the Northeast Avalon region. These include a food pantry, community kitchen and community outreach and education.

“This game is a highlight for many players in our leagues,” says Melissa Wheeler, SWURL president. “It’s a great opportunity for our players, as well as players that have returned home for the holidays, to get together and play a game for fun with the intent of giving back to the community. SWURL and MAUL provide the field space free of charge for any players that want to play in our charity games with the caveat that players bring cash or non-perishable food items that we can then bring to Bridges to Hope.”

“Being able to provide such a substantial donation each year is something that our leagues are very proud of, and our players continually impress us with their festive spirit and their generosity for those in need,” she adds.

Forty players from the Men’s Avalon Ultimate League and St. John’s Women’s Ultimate Recreational League took part in the annual tradition, which sees the two leagues challenge each other to raise the most donations from its players. MAUL narrowly won the challenge for the fourth year in a row.

“It’s heartwarming to see generosity of our members at this time of year, just one more example of what makes our community special,” says Nick House, president of MAUL. “We are grateful for their contribution to an important cause.”

The charity game was held on Dec. 20.
