Pioneers working hard to give back to the community

Glenville, W.Va. – Several members of the Glenville State College Pioneer Football Team went to Foodland Plaza last week to help Hospice Care Resale Shop Manager, Angie Linger, get the store remodeled.  Hospice Care Corporation is a non-profit organization that provides services to terminally ill patients throughout West Virginia.  The Resale Shop, located at 10 Foodland Plaza, is just one of three stores in West Virginia.  The profits made at these shops go to help Hospice Care Corporation clients that are unable to afford care.

As the new manager of the store, Ms. Linger wanted to paint, remodel and fix up the shop; to do this she needed several volunteers to help complete these tasks.  Head football coach David Hutchison wanted to have the Pioneer football team get involved, so that the store could reopen on March 25, 2013.  Linger commented, “It was wonderful to be able to contact Coach Hutch when I needed some help and know he would have the guys out to the store as soon as possible.  I truly appreciate his help and the team during this time.  We would not have been able to get the store finished and opened on time without the help of these young men.  They were more than willing to do whatever was needed to get the shop ready”.

Community service is a wonderful opportunity for people to help others.  It can really enrich the lives of the volunteer; as well as; providing a service that helps out the organization.  The GSC Football Team has and will continue to participate in community service activities to give back to the Glenville community.
