NEWPORT, R.I – The Salve Regina University football team will receive the Child & Family Volunteer of the Year Award for the work players have given to the organization’s “Adopt A Home” program.
The team will be presented the award at Child & Family’s annual meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 22 at 6 p.m. at Rosecliff. The team’s volunteerism will also be featured in Child & Family’s Annual Report publication.
For the past two years, Salve Regina football players have worked with the young boys in Child & Family’s Maple and Trout homes. They have led activities, served as tutors, provided Seahawks game tickets and provided mentoring as “big brothers.”
Members of the team and their coach, Bob Chesney, will attend the annual meeting on Sept. 22 to accept the award.
