150 students and adults on a service day equals a lot of good
On Saturday, October 20th the Grizzlies Foundation’s TEAM Mentoring students and mentors participated in two separate service projects at the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association (MIFA) and along the Wolf River.
Ninety five students and adults from the TEAM Mentoring programs at Power Center Academy Middle School, KIPP Memphis and Soulsville Charter School went to MIFA to put together emergency preparedness kits, learn CPR and talk about how to create a family plan in case of an emergency.
Down by the Wolf River, 50 students and adults from Power Center Academy cleaned up trash in order to beautify the area and prevent the trash from being washed into the river and from there into the Mississippi. They pulled garbage, car parts and many dozens of tires from the area and then learned about the river ecosystem and the Wolf River watershed area.
Each year the Grizzlies TEAM Mentoring programs participate in a service project with the goal to instill a sense of responsibility and also pride in their larger community of Memphis.
