Team Athens Pays It ForwardNot only are our girls super talented gymnasts, but they are also very caring and giving young ladies! Each year, they select a community service project whereby they give back to those within the community in which they live.
- December 2005: Team Athens wrote to Build-a-Bear Workshop and asked them to donate bears. Build-a-Bear responded by donating two dozen bears, which the girls distributed to the pediatric patients at both Athens Regional Medical and St. Mary's Hospital just before Christmas.
- December 2006: Team Athens visited Athens Heritage Nursing Home and performed a dance routine for the residents. They also played bingo and gave each resident a gift.
- December 2007: Team Athens chose to forgo their own gift exchange and decided to adopt a family. The children in the family ranged in age from 10 months to seven years old; team Athens purchased gifts and food for the adopted family.
- December 2008: Team Athens collected canned goods for the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia.
Great job! Way to go Team Athens!
