Several Lee’s Summit High School football players and coaches spent the afternoon donating their time and their strength at the Hillcrest Thrift Store of Lee’s Summit. Proceeds from the store help support the non-profit Hillcrest Transitional Housing program.
Hillcrest officials contacted LSHS to ask if several student athletes would be willing to volunteer at the charitable organization during a deep clean. The cleaning project involved moving items throughout the store, including everything from racks of clothing to large furniture.
LSHS Coach Eric Thomas organized the community-service project, offering football players not involved in a spring sport the opportunity to volunteer after school on April 6. A total of 14 players spent around two hours moving items from place to place as the store was thoroughly cleaned.
