Along with other Seattle Seahawks' player's wives, Ashley attended the SWA Day of Service- this year benefitting the residents of Mary's Place Family Center in Seattle, WA.  Mary's Place is a community non-profit that provides shelter and services for women, children and families as they make their way out of homelessness. 

The SWA Day of Service was dedicated to the young residents of Mary's Place to give them a "day of beauty."  The wives of the Seattle Seahawks served a lunch and then spent the afternoon providing residents with fun beauty activites: nail polishing, hair and makeup along with donating items such as new hairbrushes, jewelry and scarves. 

The Seahawks Women's Association also donated undergarments and socks for the residents in addition to the fun activities at the afternoon event.

On Sunday, October 6, 2019, our Research Analyst Intern, Jade, volunteered for the North Shore Walk to Defeat ALS. The walk took place on the beautiful campus of Endicott College, where Jade attends school. Jade and her ice hockey teammates helped with the set-up process, checking participants in, and cheering participants on as they united together, walking to end ALS.

The event was so moving as 50 teams consisting of over 400 participants came together to honor loved ones, fight for those affected, and raise funds. This is Jade’s fourth year volunteering for the event and every year she is amazed by the ALS community as they are so upbeat and positive.
