GREENSBORO, NC – The Greensboro Swarm® are taking a time out from the court to give back to their community. The NBA G League affiliate of the Charlotte Hornets is teaming up with High Point-based Blue Ridge Companies to sort and process food at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.
The team of volunteers will be at the food bank Tuesday, February 26th from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Second Harvest Food Bank is located at 3655 Reed Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27107. This is the second year volunteers from Blue Ridge Companies and the Greensboro Swarm have partnered for a volunteer day at Second Harvest.
“We are always grateful for the opportunity to give back to our community,” says Blue Ridge Companies’ Executive Vice President Susan Passmore. “Second Harvest fills an important need in our community. Working with Second Harvest Food Bank is one of Blue Ridge Companies’ biggest annual campaigns. We are excited that our friends from the Greensboro Swarm can join us to make a difference.”
“We are fortunate to work with Blue Ridge Companies as we align with similar community platforms,” says Swarm team president, Steve Swetoha. “The afternoon at Second Harvest Food Bank is a great opportunity for our staff, coaches and players to make a positive impact. As the Triad has continued to support our organization, it is important for us to find opportunities to give back. We are thankful to share this opportunity with our partner.”
“We are thrilled that the Greensboro Swarm is back again volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank,” said the hunger-relief organization’s CEO, Eric Aft. “The team is in the midst of an intense season schedule but is taking time out to give back and help fight hunger. We love that they’ve matched up with a group of our longtime friends and supporters at Blue Ridge Companies to make double the difference. Theirs is an example we hope others will follow, as Second Harvest partners with local grocery assistance programs across our 18-county service region to provide healthy food for families, seniors, and children who need our help.”
