Generosity Abounds Among Members of Wood Middle’s Volleyball Team

The Wood Middle School volleyball players used teamwork to support breast cancer awareness. Throughout the month of October the girls donned pink hair bows while the boys sported pink socks and laces. 

They hosted bake sales at the games and asked their classmates for donations on game days. 

The Beavers decided that because Wood is a Title I (low-income) school, they wanted to help others who are low-income, so they selected the “Friends of Faith” organization, whose mission is to help low-income, under-insured women (and men) undergoing treatment for breast cancer. 

On Nov. 4, they presented the Friends of Faith Foundation with $600.

The Alameda Education Foundation middle-school sports program provides students with a safe, healthy after-school activity that supports sportsmanship, teamwork, goal setting, self-confidence and school spirit.
