TUPELO – The Itawamba Community College softball team took some time to help out some furry friends at the Tupelo-Lee Humane Society before heading home for Thanksgiving Break.
The defending North Division Champs helped clean the animal-human meeting room, the shelter’s common area, and were able to interact with some of the animals housed at the shelter. The entire team attended the session, and a few of the players came away with the ultimate reward as they adopted animals from the shelter.
“This was a great chance for the girls to give back to the community,” said ICC head softball coach Chad Case. “Opportunities like these allow us to give back to the community that’s been so supportive of our program over the years.”
The Tupelo-Lee Human Society was founded in December of 1979. The society has approximately 500 individual, family, and corporate members while operating on funding from membership dues, donations, and fundraisers. For more information contact the society at 662-841-6500 during the hours of operation Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Lady Indians also volunteer at local nursing homes and participate in Coach Shaun Holiday’s “A Way Out” program geared to help area students from third grade to high school seniors with tutoring throughout the school year.
