Men’s Basketball Shares on Thanksgiving
November 27, 2015
Dayton, Ohio – Before heading home for a short holiday break, members of the Sinclair Men’s Basketball team spent part of Thanksgiving Day volunteering at the Dayton Convention Center.
This annual event, the Feast of Giving is considered one of the largest Thanksgiving Day events in the nation and servers an estimated 8,000-9,000 people each year. It takes over 500 volunteers and countless organizations making donations of all kinds to keep this event completely free to the public. Spearheading this effort is Dr. Steve Levitt and Lori Parsons of Dermatologists of Southwest Ohio.
Even though the season is underway and teams are gearing up for the start of conference play, taking time to give back has been a staple of the Sinclair Men’s Basketball team for many years. Under Coach Price, the team has volunteered at the Dayton Boys and Girls Club and now for the last couple years at the Feast of Giving. It has become an annual part of the Men’s Basketball program and a great experience for the student-athletes.
A long but rewarding day that starts at 10am and will not conclude until around 2pm. Four hours walking around the Convention Center on concrete serving the needs of the less fortunate and even taking a few minutes to have a holiday conversation with someone eating all alone can make a difference. It’s a day of many experiences.
