KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The UMKC softball team recently held a toy drive at the annual Roos Softball Camp, bringing the total of community service events up to four on the 2018-19 season.
The Roos started the year with an on-campus volunteer event working the UMKC Regalia Run where the girls helped stop on-coming traffic and cheered runners on to victory as they participated in the 10k run around UMKC’s campus and the Brookside area.
In the month of October, the team hosted their annual blood drive in memory of Shonda Stanley, a former UMKC softball player. The Roos reached their goal of 30 donors with a soaring 16 first-time donors.
For the month of November, the girls participated in a Special Olympics bowling event in the greater Kansas City area. The Roos helped keep the event organized, the bowlers in the correct order and the lanes prepped and ready to go with bumpers and ramps as needed.
Moving into the 2019, UMKC has set the standard to participate in at least one community service event each month. Volunteering around campus and across the Kansas City area has become a tradition for the Softball team. The team is looking forward to the impacting the children across the Kansas City area and communities over the next four months.
