In the spring, the teams worked together to clean up trash at local parks including the Pepsi Soccer Complex, Kennedy Elementary soccer fields and grounds, Milwaukee Parks and trail, and Lincoln Elementary fields and grounds. 144 team members and over 30 adult volunteers helped out, for a total of 152 volunteer-hours.
The U9-U11 Boys (31 volunteers, 47 volunteer-hours) walked a south Fargo neighborhood for River Keepers, marking storm drains and passing out information about how to keep our rivers clean and healthy.
The U12 Boys (21 volunteers, 31.5 volunteer-hours) cleaned and organized the thrift store at the New Life Center. All proceeds from this store go toward outreach programs for homeless people in our community.
The U13-14 Boys (26 volunteers, 39 volunteer-hours) helped with projects at the CHARISM Community Center, and learned about the impact this organization has in helping the community helping at-risk individuals in families through outreach programs.
The U9-U14 Girls (91 volunteers, 136.5 volunteer-hours) worked at the Great Plains Food Bank, filling food boxes for distribution to feeding programs such as soup kitchens, food pantries, after school programs, senior meal sites, and shelters across the state of ND and MN’s Clay county.
Finally, as part of the end of season celebration, the Wolfpack collected and donated school supplies to the United Way of Cass-Clay’s School Supply Drive. Through the generosity of the club members, we were able to supply backpacks, markers, crayons, pencils, paper, glue, cash donations, and more to help local students in need be prepared for success in school.
