We are excited to announce Penfield’s Promise! We will be honoring this promise at our athletic contests throughout the entire school year! In lieu of an admission fee, we have partnered with the Global Sports Boosters and PrimeTime585 to collect donations for EL Tower in Rochester, which houses many veterans and their families. Items will be collected at each home game and then sorted and delivered by our athletes! Please see the list below and the attached flyer for more details.
Fall Sports Admission Items
Football & Cheer- Toiletries
Soccer- Canned Goods
Golf, Tennis, & Gymnastics- Socks
Field Hockey, Swim, & X-Country- Non-perishable items
Over the course of the school year every varsity athlete will be helping in some capacity. The others will only help with the collections. The varsity teams will create care packages, all will write notes to the residents and captains or teams will be responsible for visiting and stocking the food pantry.
Teamwork makes the dream work! So proud of our student athletes and our Penfield community for your support of Penfield’s Promise! We made our first delivery to E.L. Tower today! 9/29
