2017-18 Community Activities Recap

שתפו את החברים

In a season in which wins were hard to come by on the court, Maccabi Hunter Haifa were winners off the court — staying true to their core mission of giving back to the Haifa community. The 2017-18 season was full of activities that positively impacted underprivileged and special needs children from Haifa and the North. Thanks to generous donors from Israel and the United States, the team’s Haifa Hoops for Kids charity program hosted nearly 3,600 children in need at Maccabi Haifa home games this season from organizations throughout northern Israel. The children were provided with souvenirs and the opportunity to meet their favorite players.

Maccabi Haifa players made weekly visits to schools, non-profit organizations, boarding schools, and Rambam Hospital. The scope of this year’s activities was even more extensive.


Prior to every Maccabi Hunter Haifa home game, a patient from the Ruth Rappaport Children’s Hospital was presented with the honorary game ball. Each pregame ceremony was very powerful and exciting for everyone in the arena.

Over the past 3 days, our players, in coordination with the youth department, visited Nofim, Herzl and Hofit elementary schools.Willy Workman: "Maccabi Haifa is more than a basketball club — it's a club for the city and the community.
