As a way to give back to the community, the Stonewall Sirens flag football team recently donated several Easter egg baskets to the Imperial Court de San Diego’s annual Children’s Easter egg hunt.
The eighth annual hunt will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 4, at Trolley Barn Park in University Heights.
Team member Ricky Cervantes said that “while we have a lot of fun playing football, we wanted to do something as a team to give back to the community. When I heard about the need for baskets, I thought it would be a perfect, easy way for our team to help out.”
Team members were sent an e-mail asking them to each buy or obtain at least one basket and bring it to the game on Saturday, March 27. Several baskets were collected and were delivered to Regina Styles, Empress 38 of the Imperial Court de San Diego.
Styles noted that over 600 baskets are needed to provide to the Easter egg hunt participants, for ages 12 and younger. The court relies on donations of baskets from community members and organizations to make the event a success. Community members and organizations who wish to donate baskets may do so by contacting Styles at (619) 288-1183. Baskets must be pre-packaged.
The Sirens, which are a part of the San Diego American Flag Football League, won their game 32-26 on Saturday. Karma? The team plans to participate in other community giving projects in the upcoming weeks, as well.
