On Saturday, October 19, ten girls from both the JV and Varsity Volleyball team traveled south to the Austin's Central Texas Food Bank. They felt called to serve to be reminded of the season's theme of, "Here to Serve." The girls worked alongside with approximately 40 other community volunteers for three hours, unloading, inspecting and repacking two 18-wheeler trucks of watermelon. Most of the watermelon that was packed, were large 30-pound size watermelons! The watermelons were distributed at the following week's meals to Austin's hungry. The Austin Food Bank serves up 46,000 meals a week. Learn more about the Central Texas Food Bank.

In September, the Volleyball program went to Hill Country Bible Church to help pack bags of food to send to families and children in the Bahamas. The project was hosted by Dream Dinners of Austin to support their efforts of the Fight Against Hunger Foundation. 

Thank you to all the Volleyball parents that assisted and supported their students to participate in the service opportunities.
