Gymnastics Continues to Raise High in The Community
Colonials volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank
Last weekend, the George Washington gymnastics team volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank in NE Washington, D.C. The food bank is the largest organization in the Washington metro area that works to fight against hunger, chronic under nutrition, heart disease, and obesity.
While at the food bank, the gymnastics team helped by placing canned foods on a conveyor belt, sorting each can, and then packaging and labeling them. They also stayed behind until the end of the day to help clean and sweep the warehouse.
“We try to volunteer at all different places and events to become aware of the different issues surrounding the world we live in,” said junior Yurina Harada.
The team has volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank for the past three years. The food bank partners with 444 community organizations around the DMV area, and they estimate that they help get food to over 540,000 people each year.
The gymnastics team continues to set a great standard around campus with their philanthropic involvement. Earlier this year, the team volunteered at the Race to Beat Cancer and the Buddy Walk.
“We get to go home knowing that something as simple as sorting, packaging, and labeling boxes of food helped families fighting hunger today,” Harada said.
