The Greensboro Swarm, the NBA G League affiliate of the Charlotte Hornets, has partnered with Allegacy Federal Credit Union on a theme jersey for the February 23 home game against the Grand Rapids Drive. Proceeds from the sale of the game-worn jerseys will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC.
“We are thrilled to work with Allegacy once again for our second theme jersey night in team history,” Swarm President Steve Swetoha said. “Last season’s theme night was a tremendous success. Both Allegacy and the Swarm care deeply about our community in the Triad and this is another step in our efforts to raise funds and awareness for an important nonprofit. Together, we hope to assist in having a healthy and hunger-free community.”
The theme jersey night aligns with Allegacy’s commitment and support of a healthy community. The special jerseys that the Swarm will wear are custom-made with the Food Bank logo. The jerseys will be available in a silent auction during the game, with winners recognized in a special postgame program with players on the court.
“Allegacy’s brand promise is to do the right thing for your wellbeing and it is an honor to rally alongside the Greensboro Swarm to really make a difference in the fight against hunger in the Triad. We are excited to expand our partnership and awareness of the Second Harvest Food Bank at such a memorable event,” said Cathy Pace, Allegacy President and CEO. “All of our organization has a desire to play a role in helping our community by promoting education around health and wellness to motivate individuals to keep being their best and that starts with addressing the food disparity right here in our community.”
Fans can also donate $10 worth of nonperishable food items in exchange for a single ticket into the game. All food items collected will be given to the Food Bank.
