Roller Derby team asking for help after someone takes food donations

Posted: Updated:

The Grinch came early this year for an eastern North Carolina team trying to help others.

In October, The Ring City Rollergirls Derby team decided to host and invitational tournament to roll out their Thanksgiving food drive. The goal was to collect as many non-perishable food items and donate them to Mary’s Kitchen in Kinston right before Thanksgiving. However, last week the team noticed their box full of donations, had been taken.

“We saw the box was completely empty of food and had actually been turned into a trash can. We even had some bandaids and some bottled water in there, and they had emptied out the band-aids and drank all the water and then thrown everything back into the box. It was completely empty," said team member Sara Castellano.

Castellano says the team does not know who might have taken the donations.


Castellano says originally the team was angry and discouraged; but like all good teams they pulled together.

“There are always going to be people that do things that we can't really explain and don't really understand, but we have the ability to turn it into a positive that will help even more people," said Castellano.

 The Ring City Rollergirls are now reaching out to the public anyway they can to try and collect even more food donations.
