On Saturday, November 23rd our travel teams were scheduled to play against Washington. In light of the tornadoes that had occurred only days earlier, our teams wanted to give back to the Washington Community. The teams bought t-shirts from Team Works which was donating profits back to the Washington Community. We purchased $1,060. Rather than charge admission that day, we put a collection box at the door. $633 was raised and given to the Red Cross for Central IL Tornado Recovery. We also showed support in the following ways:
Put up posters on the walls - Washington Strong, Wishing them well
4th Grade Girls gave the Washington Team a couple signed Posters wishing them good luck before the game and made each of the girls a "rubber band bracelet"
5th Grade Girls gave signed blankets to each of the girl's on the Washington team
5th Grade Girls and 5th Grade Boys took a picture with the combined teams after the game wearing the Washington Strong shirts
