Rocky Point School District’s baseball program continued their mission to give back to the community by once again volunteering at Maureen’s Haven Homeless Shelter in Cutchogue this spring.
The players, which included members of the varsity, junior varsity and middle school baseball teams, joined together with their coaches to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for the homeless serviced by the shelter. During their visit, the players spent hours setting up the location. They brought with them hundreds of food, toiletries and clothing items they had collected throughout the year and many homemade treats they created. Additionally, the teams donated more than 60 gift cards to provide additional meals for the needy.
Before completing their service, all of the student volunteers received praised from the shelter’s director for their kindness and generosity.
