Seahawks D-Line Invites Fans to Drop off Non-Perishable Food Items on Sunday

 RENTON, Wash. – Seahawks DE Michael Bennett announced yesterday an invitation for all Seahawks fans to bring non-perishable food items to Touchdown City on Sunday. The food drive is being organized by the Seahawks defensive line unit for Union Gospel Mission.

“We’re doing a food drive with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission for the community so it would be good if the fans can bring two to three canned goods – to help feed – Christmas spirit time – time of giving back so it would be cool if everybody could bring two to three canned goods for the people – it’s a community effort so as long as everybody comes. If we can get 1% of the 12s to bring some canned goods that would be a special day.”

Volunteers will be collecting cash and food items both outside and inside Touchdown City. All donations will be given to Union Gospel Mission.

“They can go to Touchdown City – look for a seven-foot poster of three black men – you’ll see a poster of me or Cliff Avril, Kevin Williams or Tony McDaniels, [Brandon] Mebane. Go to that cardboard cutout and drop off those canned goods and we will have some fun.”
