The Port Jefferson Varsity Club comprises 95 athletes who typically contribute around 30 hours of volunteer service annually.
This year, their activities commenced with placing flags for 9/11 remembrance. They also volunteered at a Halloween event, setting up themed tables for local elementary school children to enjoy a safe trick-or-treating experience.
In November, they will take part in the Polar Plunge, an event that has raised $50,000 over the past eight years, with the proceeds benefiting the Special Olympics.
Lastly, in November, they participate in flag placement to honor Veterans on Veterans Day.
Keep an eye out for additional community service initiatives from this fantastic group!
