Rocky Point High School baseball teams continued its long-standing tradition of giving to others when they once again visited and volunteered at Maureen’s Haven Homeless Outreach Center this spring.
Upon arrival at the center, the team members helped to tidy up the facility, cleaning the floors and setting up bedding and sleeping areas. Additionally, they readied the dining spaces, packed lunch bags and placed donations on the beds of those who would be visiting. As part of this effort, the teams provided both food donations for the center, as well as toiletry items and gift cards to local restaurants for those who stay.
The program has been conducting this outreach effort for the past seven years, beginning first under the direction of now retired coach Andrew Aschettino, who facilitated the effort twice a year.
