November 20, 2013MILTON, Ga. As part of their fall season, members of four Cambridge feeder lacrosse teams in Milton, ranging in age from 9 to 15, participated in a community service project, working together as one large team to collect canned goods and household items for North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) in Roswell.
On Nov. 6, the boys delivered a truckload of goods to NFCC's food pantry, a facility that provides about eight tons of food per week to needy families in the North Fulton area, according to NFCC staff member Kevin Tracy.
"We are so appreciative of any donations, especially everyday food needs such as breakfast cereals, rice, dried beans and canned meats," said Tracy. "At times we serve up to 100 families per day, and the needs of those families continue on well after the holidays are over."
Fran Ritter from the Cambridge Feeder Lacrosse Board of Directors said the annual service project is designed to "engage the boys in an act of kindness and have them take on an active role in helping our community."
As the popularity of the game of lacrosse grows, so does the Cambridge feeder program, with seven teams forming for the upcoming spring season. For more information, visit www.cambridgefeederlacrosse.org.
