PHS is Thankful for Amazing Volunteers

PHS’s volunteerism program, Sharing Care, has been busy with some fun activities in the past few weeks and we’re excited to be able to share them with you all.

iCAN Hoop

Last Sunday, November 13th, Sharing Care volunteers made the trek out to Excelsior to play basketball with some extremely talented kids. The basketball clinics are put on by West Metro Miracle Athletics (they also has a baseball league in the summer) provides super special children in the west metro, with ANY cognitive and/or physical challenges an opportunity to play basketball and baseball. PHSers had so much fun practicing dribbling, shooting and passing with the kids. Former U of M Gopher basketball player Jeff Hagen was also on hand to teach the kids some moves and the importance to focus and dedication not only on the court but also in the classroom. You can check out the photos in the video slideshow below or by visiting our Facebook page here.

Memorial Blood Centers- Blood Drive

This year PHS decided to add a little competition to our blood drives; we now have ‘The Quick Draw’ traveling trophy that goes to the donor with the fastest donation time (SAFELY!!!) The new competition was a ton of fun yesterday and we’re already looking forward to our next drive. Thank you to Memorial Blood Centers for making sure our competition is fun, yet still safe.

Does your child play in the iCAN hoop league? Or do you have any ideas for other fun volunteer events for the Sharing Care group? Leave us a comment, we’d love to hear from you!
