SeKON in the Community

Last month, some of our SeKON team had an opportunity to assist in bagging oatmeal for local families in need. With our community partners, Arlington Food Assistance Center. Our team bagged over 200 pounds of oatmeal, which helped feed over 50 families in the community!


In August, the WNBA Mystics donated over 400 pairs of shoes to Sharing Shoes. The collection was done on behalf of WNBA athlete Brittney Griner, who has been wrongfully imprisoned in Russia since February of this year. Griner is known for her involvement in the community. To show support for Griner, many organizations have stepped in on her behalf to continue her work. The shoes donated were from Mystics players, DC community members, and Mystics employees.  A special thank you goes to the Mystics and one of our partners, Sole Wash, for coordinating, executing, and delivering these shoes. The delivery comes at a perfect time, as the new school year has started, and many young athletes will be in need!
