On Saturday, September 10, 2016 SF PAL Seahawks Tiny Mites faced off against their rivals from Monterey, California (Marina). The Marina team brought heavy hitters which were matched by the Seahawks; who had their game faces on even prior to the weigh-ins. Coaches from both teams did a great job putting the young players in a position to make great plays. The crowd; led by the Seahawks Cheer Squad, exploded when the Seahawks scored a 40 yard touchdown early on in the game. All in all, it was a great team effort on both sides and a fun day for team SF PAL. Click on the above photo to view photos from the game.
The San Francisco Police Activities League – SF PAL Cadet Program – held it’s 1st annual Canned Food Drive benefiting St. Anthony’s Foundation; an organization dedicated to helping those who are less fortunate in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco.

We collected over 2000 canned and packaged goods for donation. We all pitched in to lend a helping hand to members of our own community. A special thanks goes out to Captain Greg Yee of the SFPD Regional Training Facility, Captain John Sanford of Park Station, Captain Teresa Ewins of Tenderloin Station, Wendy Shipley of the San Francisco Police Credit Union, Donny Perez of Costco SF, and to Lydia Bransten of St. Anthony’s Foundation for helping to organize this event.
