Jr. K-Wings to help with area charity

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings are proud to announce that several members of the team will be helping out with Loaves and Fishes, a community effort to erase hunger.

The event runs tomorrow from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Douglass Community Center on Paterson Street in Kalamazoo.

Participating for the Jr. K-Wings will be Christian George, Taylor Burden, Danny Hamburg, Dalton Carter, Nolan Culver and Kyle Gattelaro.

Loaves and Fishes have been helping feed the hungry in the Kalamazoo area since 1982. They are by far the largest emergency food distribution system in Kalamazoo County, opening their doors to over 100,000 people annually.

The members of the team will be helping to pass out meals to those who are unable to provide meals for themselves, whether it is a financial of physical burden that is preventing them from eating meals.

“We always love to give back to a community that has already given us so much,” stated Kalamazoo head coach Marc Fakler. “We are always willing to help out a good cause in the city of Kalamazoo."
