Seawolves and WaFd Bank Lend a Hand to Seattle Compassion Services
FREMONT, WASHINGTON (APRIL 6, 2022) – On Sunday, March 20, Seawolves staff, players, and fans teamed up with WaFd Bank volunteers to support Seawolf Eric Duechle and his organization, Seattle Compassion Services.
“Sunday’s cleanup was a special day,” said Eric Duechle, executive director of Seattle Compassion Services and two-time Major League Rugby champion. “We brought together the rugby family to make our community a little more beautiful. The Seattle Compassion mission is to build relationships, educate, and lead homelessness initiatives in the community – and our litter pick accomplished just that. Together we can tackle homelessness and any other hardships that may come our way. Thank you to the Seattle Seawolves and WaFd Bank for their compassion and hard work.”
In addition to physically lending a hand to clean up our community, the Seawolves and WaFd Bank donated $5,000 each to Seattle Compassion Services.
“As a huge fan of Eric Duechle, the person, the rugby player, and the Executive Director of Seattle Compassion Services, supporting Eric and Seattle Compassion Services in the work they do in our community was a no-brainer for the Seattle Seawolves,” said Brian Jones, president of Seattle Seawolves Rugby. “Eric is a member of the Seawolves family, and following his lead, the Seawolves were proud to contribute to the 3/20 community clean up and look forward to continuing to support Seattle Compassion Services vision of ending homelessness in Washington. In addition to Eric and Seattle Compassion Services, the Seawolves would like to thank our friends and partners at WaFd Bank who donated to Seattle Compassion Services and rallied a large group of employees to volunteer on 3/20, as well as several Seawolves fans and season ticket members who showed up and contributed to the effort. Many hands make light work and giving back to our community feels so good.”
The Seattle Seawolves thank Eric and Seattle Compassion Services for all of their inspiring work. We look forward to the next opportunity and fans can stay tuned for more community clean ups in the future. Learn more about Seattle Compassion Services and how you can support here.
