The Cheney Stadium We R Tacoma team store has joined forces in support of Hero Meals with a fundraiser called R Hat R City, in which $5 of every hat purchased from the team store goes directly to help feed essential workers across the city.
The R Hat R City fundraising initiative was originally launched in November of 2019 in support of the Watt’s Up Solar Project by Jason Lee Middle School. According to Alec Garcia, We R Tacoma director of media relations and content development, “It was a great way for our fans to get involved in a worthy cause. When we became familiar with the Hero Meals program, we knew we wanted to bring it back to help support our community.”
This time, Tacoma Defiance soccer apparel will support the cause along with Rainiers apparel.
Hero Meals is a project started by the Downtown Tacoma Partnership. For every $25 donated, three meals can be purchased and delivered to essential personnel like grocery store staff, law enforcement agencies, and those in the medical field. The program supports frontline workers as well as local restaurants. Multiple local establishments are participating, including: Stink, the Swiss Restaurant & Pub, and Wooden City. Also, anyone can make a straight donation to the cause.
With more than 150 hats to choose from, show your team and city pride and help support those that are out there making a difference in the community each and every day. More here.
