NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee State University volleyball team participated in several acts of community service around the city at the beginning of the spring semester.
The Tigers went to Lakeview Elementary, the Samaritan Minister, and the Safe Haven Family Shelter in an effort to give back to the city.
On Jan. 29, the team went to Lakeview Elementary in Antioch to spend the afternoon with the students. Some players read to the kindergartners and first graders while others spent time with the second through fourth graders telling them about what it is like to be a student athlete.
The team next helped out at the Samaritan Minister on Jan. 31 for a couple of hours during the day. While there, the team greeted those people coming in, served them food, and helped the workers clean up afterward.
The Tigers also spent some time at the Safe Haven Family Shelter (off 3rd Ave. South) on Feb. 10. During their time there, they helped out with childcare, playing games with the children, teaching them volleyball, and spent time with the kids.
TSU is in the midst of its spring volleyball schedule as it closes out the school year.
