On behalf of the W20 Foundation’s Project Team Up 4 Community and our generous sponsors NBTY Helping Hands, we would like to thank Smithtown Central School District’s Athletic Department for their commitment to making an impact in their community this 2014-15 School Year.
Their community service work is commendable. They have done many projects that include raising funds and awareness for Cancer Research, to feeding the hungry and homeless on Long Island. Their projects clearly demonstrate the passion they have to making a difference in the lives of others.
Recognizing that community service helps promote responsibility and character in young people, the W20 Foundation’s TeamUp4Community program has set the challenge to encourage our Long Island Youth Athletes to participate in giving back $300,000 worth of service for the 2014- 2015 School Year.
Over the next 10 months it is our goal to challenge our youth athletes, ages 6–24, to perform at least 37,500 hours of community service.
Smithtown’s community giveback contribution has been well noted on the www.TeamUp4Community.org website as an example of inspiration for others to follow.
We thank Smithtown for assisting the W20 Foundation to deliver this impactful program in and all around our Long Island Communities. We recognize athletes and organizations like theirs as our partners in achieving our goal.
Congratulations to Smithtown on receiving Third Place and a $500 Grant for their Community Service efforts in the 2014 Holiday Sports Heroes Challenge.
Smithtown has chosen to donate the $500 grant to five (5) selected Charitable Organizations.
