The Jersey Bearcats, an American Arena League (AAL) team, consider Metuchen, New Jersey, their home. The team takes great pride in giving back to their community and has selected The Children's Hospital at St. Peter's University Hospital to be the beneficiary of this season's holiday giving. They elected to designate a special donation after their annual Holiday Charity Bowl Game was canceled.
The Covid-19 restrictions may have put an end to the game this year, but not the team's generosity. The Bearcats are keenly aware that the need for charity is even more significant than ever before. Members from the team's management will present the Children's Hospital at Saint Peter's University Hospital - Child Life Program directors with a much needed monetary gift this holiday season.
"We consider our community and fans to be our family," said team co-owner, Jermaine Sanders. "We know that times are really hard out there and we wanted to do so much more for our families this year. Covid may have us sidelined for now, but we plan to do the Charity Bowl bigger and better than ever next year".

The hospital provides the highest quality of care with pint-sized precision through programs such as the Child Life Program.
"We are so very appreciative of the Jersey Bearcats," said Child Life's Program Director, Kristal Neal. "It is the wonderful community partners, like the Jersey Bearcats, that enable us to provide special gifts to our patients. Many stay with us over the holidays and other special days throughout the year."
