Greensboro Swarm, DICK’S Sporting Goods Team Up For Holiday Shopping Spree For Local Children

By Justin Trujillo | December 11, 2017

The Greensboro Swarm, the NBA G League affiliate of the Charlotte Hornets, will partner with Dick’s Sporting Goods for the second straight season for a holiday shopping spree for 10 deserving children from a local Boys & Girls Club. Along with Sergeant Swarm, Swarm players will go shopping with the children at an area DICK’S store on Tuesday, December 12.

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with DICK’S Sporting Goods to give back to our community,” said Swarm President Steve Swetoha. “Our organization is grateful to be involved in an event that brings holiday cheer to deserving children in our community.”

The special day for the children will begin with an exclusive, behind the scenes look at the Swarm’s home facility, the Fieldhouse at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex. From there the children will head to the DICK’S Sporting Goods location on Wendover Place, where players will be waiting to surprise them, on the Swarm team bus. The four Swarm players will then assist in the shopping spree inside the store.

The shopping spree, in conjunction with the NBA Cares Season of Giving, is one of several events the Swarm participate in to better serve its community. For more information on the Greensboro Swarm or DICK’S Sporting Goods, visit
