3) Feeding the Homeless and Under Served Community
Coming from a family where some members themselves have been homeless, this is a cause close to my heart. This year I will be volunteering at various shelters, food banks and also giving a portion of my donations to charities feeding / sheltering under served children in the Providence, RI area.
Community Service is so important! Giving back to underprivileged children and families feels great!
This year I will focus my volunteer service in three areas that are super important to me and my new community South/Central Rhode Island!
1) Special Needs Children
I have volunteered the past 2 years helping special needs children just feel at home in the classroom and on the playground. These children are so special and full of potential, I don't even really think of them as special needs but as special talented! This year I will donate coaching and training time to Beat the Streets to help at risk girls find empowerment and self esteem through the power of Wrestling!
2) Special Olympics
This year I will volunteer with the Special Olympics of Rhode Island to continue my work with my special talented friends outside of the classroom. Seeing the joy athletic competition and recognition brings to my friends is just thrilling! As an Athlete who has the opportunity to compete at the highest level through the generous support I receive, I have an obligation to pay forward the the same effort to help enrich the lives of these wonderful Athletes!
