WNBA Cares Week of Service

Sky players, coaches and staff are joining the Greater Chicago Food Depository this week at a local Elementary School as part of WNBA Cares Week of Service. Sky players will help over 100 families fill up grocery bags with fresh fruit, vegetables and nonperishable food from the market.

The Chicago Sky’s foundation, Sky Cares is committed to building relationships with organizations and youth in the community. Working with the Greater Chicago Food Depository on the Healthy Kids Market® allows the Sky to continue their mission of helping Chicagoland children and families grow strong and healthy.

“We are thrilled that we were able to partner with the Greater Chicago Food Depository for our WNBA Cares week of service event. Child hunger is a real issue in the Chicagoland area, and our team is happy to lend their support and bring awareness to this issue,” said President of Sky Cares Erika Swilley.

The Sky will continue to work with the Food Depository of Illinois, who leads the No Kid Hungry effort, throughout the year to raise awareness and funds for childhood hunger in the Chicagoland area. Future events include the “Food Truck Festival,” in the parking lot of Allstate Arena prior to the June 2 game and “Taste of the Nation,” in August. Fans can learn how they can help fight childhood hunger by visiting No Kid Hungry Illinois and the Great Chicago Food Depository.
