Men's Basketball Gives Back

Men's Basketball Gives Back

By Byron Mitchell '14

WINCHESTER, Va. - The Shenandoah University men's basketball team provided a helping hand in the community by participating in a fundraising event put on by the Laurel Center on Saturday, February 23.

"It is very important," head coach Rob Pryor said. "The interventions they offer women who are victims of domestic and/or sexual violence are life-saving."

The Laurel Center, located in Winchester, is a shelter for abused and battered women.

Pryor's club got started at 6 a.m., unloading Rubbermaid materials from trucks to set up and help sell during the event, which took place in the parking lot of Apple Blossom Mall.

Proceeds from the fundraiser went to the Laurel Center.

The men's team has been working with the center since the beginning of the 2012-13 school year and the project on the 23rd is the third that the two groups have worked with each other this year.

"Our team believes in their cause and were excited to support them when they called and asked for our help," said Pryor. We are proud to help support them in their efforts in any way possible."

Team captain Bryce Mitchell was happy to participate in this community service with his teammates and the entire team appreciates the opportunity to give back.

"It makes us feel good that we can give back doing something that probably not most college students would want to do—getting up at 5:00 in the morning to help unload trucks and not getting paid for it," said Mitchell. "It's just a good thing to do and it's a good feeling that comes along with it."
