Signed Jerseys and Gear Donations Completed for 2013
The team at Souths Cares and the South Sydney Rabbitohs are unable to accept any more requests for signed jerseys or signed memorabilia for the 2013 season, with hundreds of community groups and charities benefitting from donations of signed gear from Souths Cares in 2013.
The number of requests that have been met so far this season has seen Souths Cares exhaust their entire resource of signed jerseys and other memorabilia for season 2013, meaning that any requests for signed merchandise from the Rabbitohs players will need to be assessed and fulfilled in 2014.
Charities and community groups use the signed jerseys and other items to raise money for their organisations, with some signed jerseys going for as much as $6,000 during the 2013 season.
“It’s been amazing the number of requests we’ve had this year and we try to help as many people and groups as we can,” Souths Cares General Manager Shannon Donato said.
“We literally get dozens of requests each week and our allocation of signed jerseys and other gear has simply run out as we head towards the end of the season.
“The players sign a certain amount of gear for us to use for charitable donations and community groups and they do a wonderful job in helping us help those most in need.
“It’s wonderful to hear back on how much our items have raised for these organisations and how that money they are raising helps them run their programs and help people in need.
“We look forward to helping out as many people, charities and communities groups as we can again in season 2014.”
Please note that there is a new program for schools and clubs which has started in the 2013 season.
The Rabbitohs Friendly Schools and Clubs Program is aimed at creating a greater connection with the schools and clubs in the South Sydney area that support the Rabbitohs.
As a club we want to give back to the schools and clubs that support us which means there are numerous benefits associated for your school or club.
If you would like more information or would like to join up for this program please contact the Rabbitohs via email at email@example.com or by calling 02 8306 9922.
