On Thursday, March 8, 25 varsity team members and two coaches traveled to Libertyville to volunteer at Feed My Starving Children where they helped hand pack rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags, which are sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to the neediest children around the world.
Team and coaches came away feeling it was a rewarding experience for all. More information about this program can be found here.
On Wednesday, March 14, Lake Forest & Lake Bluff Youth Baseball programs will be coming to watch the Lake Forest Varsity practice and hopefully pick up some tips on improving their baseball skills.
