Providence, RI- The Brown University Softball team has been busy with the spirit of giving this fall. The 2011 squad has been spending more time this fall assisting Ms. Marcello's first grade class at Vartan Gregorian School in the Fox Point section of East Providence.
Not stopping there - the team chose to add a long-term program to their volunteerism, and so began their work with a local soup kitchen, Judy's Kindness Kitchen that is run out of the Congregation Beth Sholom. It services those at Crossroads – downtown Providence, the largest homeless service organization in Rhode Island. The team's new initiative "Homeruns for the Homeless," is expected to kick off in the spring - every homerun hit by the team will translate into money for the Judy's Kindness Kitchen.
