Hamilton High School Chargers football players did their part to relieve hunger for others. The players volunteered for six hours at the World Wide Hunger Relief Warehouse in Waukesha. They packed 24 pallets of pizza provided by Palermo’s which were sent to Feeding America, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and other inner-city hunger relief organizations and ministries.
The players have opportunities to volunteer as part of the football team. They are expected to accumulate volunteer hours throughout the year to develop personal growth and leadership skills.
“We feel strongly about our volunteer opportunities as team-bonding activities that will leave a lasting impact on others,” said Hamilton Football Head Coach John Damato.
“This particular event is an annual event that we typically have done in the past but we have never done this sheer volume,” Damato said. “The boys set the goal to get it done under six hours and they were successful. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
