Fifteen St. Louis Community College students in the Human Services program at the William J. Harrison Education Center joined the St. Louis Rams in the NFL-United Way Hometown Huddle Tuesday, Oct. 28, to paint, repair and clean up the outdoor activity fields at the Matthews-Dickey Boys and Girls Club.

Huddle Day of Service project.

Hometown Huddle is a league-wide day of service designed to bring awareness and impact to the issue of youth health and fitness.

The group collectively chose the United Way/NFL Day of Service as one of its volunteer work service projects because the students understand that youth are the future, and believe that the work of the Boys and Girls Clubs in the community is critical to building future community leaders.

“As a member of the African-American  Charmaine Chapman Society of the United Way, I believe that is critically important to support the African-American community, particularly in light of the Ferguson unrest,” said Angela Roffle, Human Service department chair. “Many of our students have received services from United Way organizations; this is just one way we can give back to United Way.”
