This is a picture of our men's basketball team participating at a Food Drive. It was part of community service we try to involve our players in each year. The service consisted of loading up boxes of food into big trucks for Thanksgiving families. The food was delivered to food shelters throughout the Denver areas.
At first, our players didn't find interest in the project however once we started working they began to work together and enjoy themselves. The project gave them a sense of giving as they at times are always on the end of receiving. I think our players enjoyed working together and knowing the their efforts served a "purpose". Many of our players come from poverty and single family homes. The food drive game them a feeling of giving back to the community and less fortunate. It was a great oppertunity to give back to the community. Attached is a photo at the end of our project.

  1. It's good to see you guys get your players involved in the community. It's a good eye opening experience for them and you guys do an excellent job in their transition into manhood.
