One Meal, an organisation which supports the homeless and people in need, with Sharks star Chad Townsend a willing volunteer in recent months, will be the Sharks Community Partner for the game against the Eels on Saturday.
Representatives from Sutherland Shire One Meal will be beneficiaries of the 50/50 game day raffle this weekend, funds what will allow them to continue their outstanding work in the community.
(Those unable to get to the game can still purchase tickets and support One Meal, with 50-50 raffle tickets on sale online from 5pm on Thursday until kick off of the NRL game on Saturday – go to https://5050charityraffle.com.au/sharks)
One Meal currently feeds between 30 and 45 patrons in the local area and growing, with sadly some of those in need being children.
Also, as an additional support of One Meal, the Sharks Leagues Club is asking Members, Guests and staff to donate any spare blankets (sturdy woollen ones are best) or sleeping bags. One Meal will then distribute to assist those experiencing homelessness and to underprivileged individuals and families struggling to keep warm as the cold of winter hits.
Anyone with clean blankets or sleeping bags to donate, please drop them into the Sharks Leagues Club Reception anytime between now and Saturday, June 8.
Earlier this year Chad Townsend was a One Meal volunteer, with the Sharks and Sporting News websites reporting his involvement and detailing some of the work done by the charity organisation.

About One Meal
One Meal is a not-for-profit, community organisation that helps to feed, clothe and support the homeless and underprivileged individuals and families.
One Meal began in December 2014 as a one-off street service to provide a treat for Christmas to people less fortunate. From there One Meal decided to operate on a monthly basis, which was then increased to weekly.
They have since gone on to host special events with world renowned chefs at Wolloomooloo and have weekly street service's in Glebe, Darlinghurst, Manly, Sutherland and a community service in Campbelltown.
