For the past ten years, the team has been organizing an annual winter coat drive. Over the last two years, they have joined forces with Rockland Trust Bank to raise greater awareness within their community.
The primary beneficiary of this coat drive is the Falmouth Service Center, a local food bank dedicated to supplying essential items and groceries to low-income families in their area.
In the current year, they have successfully gathered more than 100 jackets to contribute to the service center’s mission.
The roster consists of 24 players. Following Thanksgiving, they distribute flyers at Rockland Trust Bank and set up a table on game day to collect coats. They also conducted an extensive social media campaign leading up to the game. The majority of the efforts were focused on game day, which typically spans about three hours.
