Eastside FC takes on Eastside hunger
The girls playing for the Eastside Premier Soccer Club joined forces for a Halloween food drive, challenging their rival teams to see who had the most giving spirit. Coach Dan Bubar’s G’97 Blue girls team won the challenge for the second year in a row. Coach Tom Turner’s G’97 White team took second place.
Hopelink has reported it is serving 14 percent more people this year, equating to 18,383 individuals who need a helping hand. The Eastside FC teams collected and donated more than 1,400 pounds of food to local area food banks after their drives.
“It was great to see our soccer club rally together for a good cause. There’s a feeling here of commitment to one another and to the community,” Blue Team manager Susan McGinnis said.
The Blue team girls include Coach Bubar, Riley Dean, Jessica Freeman, Kelsey Yin, Anna McGinnis, Kendall Zack, Hanna Lund, Meredith Troy, Taylor Martinez, Abby Olson, Brianna Gergen, Jenna Weber, Joselyn Heffron and Pawehi Cloutier.
