The members of ILWR frequently make appearances, conduct skating demonstrations, and give presentations on Women’s History. Since 2008 they’ve given their time to: GIAC Senior Citizens Program, GIAC Youth After School Program, Ithaca Festival, YMCA, various local schools, the Women’s Expo, and the Ithaca Youth Bureau.

From Steve Griffith, President of Ithaca Foodnet Meals on Wheels:
“What a great Wheel-a-thon and Roller Derby! We all had fun partnering with the SufferJets. We are proud to be associated with such lively and popular team, and we can’t overemphasize the value of the publicity that comes from an event like this. Building awareness of meals on wheels means that more people will know where to turn when they need help, and more people will donate and find ways to build the capacity of Foodnet to serve those in need.”
