We had a fundraiser where we partnered with WNY Produce to sell fresh fruit and vegetable bundles. About 28 athletes participated in the fundraising. As one of the options, people could purchase these bundles as a donation. We had over 70 bundles that were purchased for donation to our local food cupboard (Irondequoit Community Cupboard). This local organization works to distribute food and clothing to families in need.
The 11 of the boys met the produce truck on Saturday morning (in the pouring rain) to unload the produce and bring into the building where it was later sent to a local nursing home and given out to community members in need.
As a parent of two scholar athletes, I know that sports and academics go hand-in-hand with being a kind person and charitable community member. These boys woke up early and came ready to help out last Saturday- all I had to do was bring the donuts!
