Navy Women's Soccer Participates in MLK Service Week
Jan. 31, 2013
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Several members of the Navy women's soccer team, along with head coach Carin Gabarra, recently traveled to the Annapolis Boys and Girls Club to reach out to area youth during the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Week.
The Athletes for Hope organization worked with the team and Gabarra, who is a member of the organization, to help set up the community service event.
The women's soccer team spoke to and visited with the children and helped make Valentine's Day cards for the upcoming holiday. The women's soccer team has frequently visited the Annapolis Boys and Girls Club for community service events.
"We've worked with this group of kids before and we really enjoy them," junior Britta Vivaldi said. "They are definitely an exciting and energetic crew. Getting involved in the Annapolis community is important to Navy Women's Soccer; it is part of who we are.
"(Coaches) Carin (Gabarra) and Rob (Blanck) make us aware of how much we can make a difference in a child's day or even month by just showing them we care about them and what they are doing. These kids are our future, so for our team to be able to help out in a small portion of a child's life makes the team and I really happy."
