Forward Madison FC is working to help River Food Pantry feed Madison’s most vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Monday, the Flamingos released a “Forward For Madison” T-shirt and announced that 10 dollars from every sale will benefit the River Food Pantry. The funds will help River continue to provide food to families in need as more Madisonians feel the effects of the pandemic.
According to Forward Madison COO Conor Caloia, the collaboration with River Food Pantry is one way to give back to the community in a time of need.
“We’ve always said that Forward Madison is a club by and for the community, so now is the time for us to have Madison’s back,” Caloia said. “River Food Pantry is doing a tremendous job helping the city through this crisis and we’re proud to support them. Now, we’re asking the whole Forward family to rally together and join us.”
River Food Pantry’s current operations include a school lunch program and a curbside pickup pantry.
The shirts can be purchased for 20 dollars on the team’s web store.
Forward Madison is also encouraging its fans to donate to River Food Pantry’s COVID-19 Emergency Food Fund.
