AHU Bantam Black team helps Feed My Starving Children
Every season, the Arizona Hockey Union’s Bantam Black team picks up wins on the ice.
Also every season, the Knights win off the ice by giving their time and volunteering with Feed My Starving Children.
It has become a traditional event and it’s a given that the team will participate every year.
Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.
Recently, the Bantam Black team met at 9 a.m. on an off weekend and had over 30 players and family members help to pack food for the Philippines.
Even an injured player, Beau Maher, who has a broken leg, was able to find work to do.
The players like helping out, not only for the obvious reason of helping children, but also because it promotes teamwork amongst them. On their own, they determine who is the best fit for each task and there is no slacking allowed.
Players pictured are Zach Delsante, Cole Brown, Sydney Pinti, Kyra Mittendorf, Josh Sherman, Nathan Graybill, Nathan McClure, River Lewis, Sean Haggard, Jeremiah Girnt, Tyler Shin, Rocco Ferrara and Kai Hohoff.
