Men's Basketball Team Focuses on Service during Trip to Rowan Helping Ministries
As a way to demonstrate "service," one of the four words on the Catawba College seal, members of the College's Men's Basketball team prepared and served a meal to approximately 100 homeless people at Rowan Helping Ministries on Sunday, September 14.
Head Coach Rob Perron, a new addition to Catawba this year, noted the experience helps his players fully develop a social consciousness and sense of their responsibility as citizens in community. "We are committed to becoming active members in the community," Perron said. "This was our first of several community outreach projects.
"Our trip to Rowan Helping Ministries was a really valuable experience for our guys. It's one of those activities where you go to help someone and then realize they are actually helping you. It was a truly humbling experience in every sense of the word. We are looking forward to returning in the future to assist in any way we can."
The players who participated in the team's day of service at Rowan Helping Ministries said the experience gave them new insights into those less fortunate.
While at Rowan Helping Ministries, the team toured both the old and new facilities available to assist those less fortunate in the Rowan-Salisbury community.
