Women's basketball team volunteers at Boys & Girls ClubNovember 18, 2008
Brevard, N.C. - The Brevard College women's basketball team did their part to make the community a better place last Thursday, volunteering at the Brevard Boys & Girls Club. This is one of many service projects Shannon Reid's team will participate in during their season
This continues a longstanding relationship between the BC Athletic Department and the Brevard community. In the past year, Tornado student-athletes have given their time to help Transylvania County schools, the Transylvania Youth Council and the Boys & Girls Club.
At the Boys & Girls Club, the Tornado women's hoopsters read to children, helped kids with their homework, and organized a number of physical activities. The student-athletes played basketball, dodge ball and hula hoop with the children.
"Volunteering at the Boys & Girls club was a great experience for our team and the kids," said Reid. "We talked with the kids about what it means to be a student athlete and the importance of getting an education; the team really enjoyed giving back to the community."
