JV Football Team Recognized for Volunteerism

Posted: January 22, 2019

The 2018-2019 junior varsity (JV) football team is being honored for its outstanding volunteerism by Via Services at the 24th Annual Via Ball, taking place February 9 at Villa Ragusa in Campbell.

The student-athletes and their “team mom” volunteer coordinator, Jennifer Packard, will be recognized as Community Partner of the Year by Via Services, a private, independent non-profit dedicated to helping children and adults with disabilities and special needs achieve greater self-sufficiency and lead richer lives through its programs.

The JV football team has volunteered at Via Services camp sessions as well as at the organization’s events, including its Fall Festival and Via Ball. “They are an amazing group of young men,” said Leslie Davis, vice president of Advancement and Sales at Via Services. “They have exemplified service above self and incredible empathy, hard work, and dedication to our population of special needs children and adults.”

This type of volunteerism is a hallmark of the Bellarmine experience, including its athletics program through which teams routinely serve together, contributing in excess of 1,000 hours of service to the community each year.
