Rebels Giving To The Community - Part Three
May 2, 2008
LAS VEGAS - This spring the UNLV women's soccer coaching staff asked asked each class to come up with a community service event for the whole team to participate in.
We've already seen a report from the sophomore and junior classes, and now we now present a report from the freshman class, as written by LaChere Anglin.
We as a freshmen class decided to give back to the community by interacting with the children. We were very happy to be a part of the "Stop the Violence" campaign at the Children's Memorial Park. This was an event that brought out kids and parents and helped to educate the children about preventing violence. Here we helped pass out nachos as well as soccer flyers, and interacted with the kids. We even had a great time dancing with some of the kids during the Juke Slide. Being with all the kids allowed us to relax for a day and remember what it was like when we were young.
We fully embraced the event and each had snow cones and cotton candy with the kids. It was great to see all the smiles on the faces of all the kids that were there at the event. We thought that this was a great event and we are very proud to have been a part of it. As a team we feel as if giving back to the community is very important and love to be role models for the young ones in our community. Overall we had a great time and realized how much of a difference a small group of people, such as our team, can have on the community. Thank you to Armando Quintanilla for allowing us to be a part of this project! We appreciate all your hard work you put into making this event a success!
Here is the last of your team's community service events for the spring. The freshman's choose to participate in this Years Stop the Violence. The event was held this last Saturday, April 12th, at Children's Memorial Park. The Stop the Violence is a children's event to educate on stopping violence.
