On Sat. Mar. 3, 14 members of the softball team and four of the coaches pitched in to help out the community by volunteering at the JB Young Opportunity Center Food Bank from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“The environment was great. Our team was welcoming and open to talking to all who arrived. I was very proud of how they represented West,” head softball coach Jake Schumann said.

Schumann was informed of the food bank through a professional development announcement that our district did a month ago.

“You do not realize how good you have it until you see people who do not even have food,” senior and softball player Kassie Remley said.

The JB Young Opportunity Center holds a food bank for citizens in need on Saturdays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and Tuesdays from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

“[The food bank] was actually a lot of fun. It really opens your eyes,” senior and softball player Courtney Harris said. “As our team is working together, it wasn’t only helping us, but others as well.”

The JB Young Food Bank is always looking for at least 20 people to volunteer on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

“Sometimes life is hard and everyone at some point needs those around them to lift them up. The more people lifted up, the better place our community is to live in,” Schumann said.
