"Service Before Self" - Bears Care Community Service
Page Created By: Tom Pulford Date : 10/14/2013
The Palmer Ridge Football Program believes in and teaches "Service Before Self". We believe it is important to instill in our young men that we need to be servants of each other, our families and our community. One way that we reinforce this is to be involved in several of the many community efforts during the run up to the season and after the season is completed. Efforts we have partnered with over the past 10 months: 1) "Kids Against Hunger" we have supported a day packaging food at a local church to support the worthy cause of "Kids Against Hunger". This effort brought a dozen or so players and coaches together to prepackage food that will feed families around the world that do not have the nourishment and food that they need to get through a day. 2.) "Colorado Springs Together"- this non-profit organization was founded in the wake of the Waldo Canyon Fire, commissioned by Colorado Springs Mayor, Steve Bach, to organize and distribute resources and donations for the recovery of Colorado Springs residents that were impacted by the Waldo Canyon Fire. Through the sales of camo hats with Palmer Ridge Football and CST Logos, all profit from hat sales go to Colorado Springs Together. 3) Tri-Lakes Cares - since Palmer Ridge opened in 2008, the football team has been part of an effort call "Bears Cares" where the young men on the football team help coordinate efforts to collect canned and dry food items for Tri-Lakes Cares. This year, in September of 2013, the "Bears Cares" effort collected 2,049 lbs of food that was donated by local great caring citizens in our community. In addition, we are looking forward to partnering with BLACK FOREST TOGETHER a non-profit organization being mentored by leaders of Colorado Springs Together, founded to help organize and distribute resources in the recovery efforts of rebuilding homes and communities damaged by the Black Forest Fire.
