Petersham Rugby has signed up to the #PlayForLives initiative and we are calling for our members to volunteer for selected Charities in our local community during Covid-19.
Spearheaded by former Socceroo Craig Foster, #PlayForLives is a rapidly growing campaign to get our athletes off the bench and into the thousands of essential volunteer positions left vacant in the wake of the coronavirus.
The Shammies have signed up to support two local charities at this stage with more to be added over the coming days. The charities we are supporting so far Food Pantry in Addison Road, Marrickville and Meals on Wheels, Surrey Hills.
It is easy to volunteer (see instructions below on how to sign up) and you can book in times and days of the week that is convenient to you. For example: in the featured photo is JK down at Food Pantry in Addison Road on a 2-4pm Tuesday shift.
See the following section to see how to sign up to #PlayForLives and use this sporting break as an opportunity to give back to our community.
