The Montana Sea Hawkers are committed to serving the communities where we live and beyond.
In 2016 our members:
- Collected more than 500 lbs of food for the Montana Food Bank Network, providing more than 420 meals to families across Montana.
- Donated 150 new toys valued at $1800 for the local Toys for Tots Christmas Toy Drive.
- Raised $1200 ($600 each) for Shodair Children's Hospital in Helena, MT, and the Ronald McDonald House in Missoula MT.
- Collected more than 50 lbs. of “household products” for the Ronald McDonald House
- We also assisted with the efforts of Sea Hawkers worldwide to help Seahawk Cliff Avril build homes in hurricane-ravaged Haiti.
With your support, we want to expand on our service in the future.
Montana Sea Hawkers are committed to serving the communities where we live and beyond.
When we gather to watch games during the 2017-18 season we are asking our members to please bring food, each week, to continue our support of the Montana Food Bank Network.
We also ask members to bring items to support the local Ronald McDonald Houses. Please see the “wish list” posted below for a list of appropriate items. http://www.rmhcwesternmontana.org/our-wish-list/
We are also planning to schedule some days to provide meals to residents at the Ronald McDonald Houses.
Later in the season, probably starting after the “bye week” in October, we will again support the Toys for Tots Toy drive.
Cash donations accepted: If for some reason you are unable to attend a Game Day Gathering but would still like to contribute to the charity efforts for the Montana Sea Hawkers you can still make a donation via PayPal on the Montana Sea Hawkers website:
Montana Food Bank Network:
Founded in 1983, the Montana Food Bank Network (MFBN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to end hunger in Montana through food acquisition and distribution, education and advocacy.
As the only statewide food bank, MFBN solicits, sorts, repackages, warehouses, and distributes donated and purchased food to charitable programs that directly serve hungry Montanans. From a main warehouse and office in Missoula, MFBN distributes emergency food across the state through a network of over 150 Partner Agencies. MFBN is the only fully privileged Montana member of Feeding America, the national hunger fighting organization.
How can you help? Montana Sea Hawkers collect food throughout the season to support the Montana Food Banks network. When we gather to watch games during the season we are asking our members to please bring food, each week.

Toys for Tots:
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
How can you help? Following the 2017 Bye Week in late October the Montana Sea Hawkers will gear up efforts to collect Toys and continue through the weekend of the Seahawks vs. Jacksonville game.
