Women's basketball team lends helping hand to Capital Area Food Bank

WASHINGTON - Last week the Gallaudet University women's basketball team shifted their attention from activities on the the basketball court to activities off the court in an effort to give back to the community.

On Monday, Nov. 21, the entire Bison women's basketball team and head coach Stephanie Stevens volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank. The Bison volunteered their time packing and wrapping hundreds of boxes that were shipped out to communities in need of food services.

"We know extra hands are always needed at the Capital Area Food Bank," said Stevens. "Our volunteer experience was rewarding even though our services lasted only a couple of hours." 

The women's basketball team hopes to offer their volunteer services for the Capital Area Food Bank every year. In total, the team combined for 72 volunteer hours.
