49ers Volunteer Day at San Francisco Food Bank – Slide Show!

Forty-niners players Takeo Spikes, Jason Hill, Josh Morgan, Brandon Jones, Dominique Ziegler, Chilo Rachal, Scott McKillop and Tony Pashos all helped tackle hunger this week when they volunteered at our warehouse. With help from other 49ers staff and students from St. Finnbarr Middle School, they boxed about 12,000 lbs. of food – part of the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), a federal program that provides a monthly box of nutritious USDA food to low-income seniors, mothers and children. Bright red 49ers stickers will let recipients know who packed their box. (And we’re not talking Green Bay Packers, here!)

In local NBC coverage of the event, Takeo Spikes said:

“It’s quality already in here, but the job we’re working on is all about quantity,” said Spikes, adding, “when you think about the holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, this is the time to give and there’s no better way to give than to come out here and take time on our day off to do something that’s very pleasing.”

And San Francisco native Jason Hill added:

“I take it to heart, I love coming out here and I just love doing community service because I feel a part of it — because I was born and raised here — it’s big for me,” he said.
