How They Served Their Community


Memphis Athletic Ministries Local 24 & CW 30 employees spent Founder's Day of Caring volunteering at a Memphis non-profit called "Memphis Athletic Ministries". Several teams of station employees volunteered both inside and outside the facility. The outside crews spent hours of heavy labor on a hot summer day cleaning up the organization’s youth golf course, after a storm rolled through several weeks before.The teams inside MAM’s facility sat in on several different classes, such as science and math. They assisted the teachers in various projects and also read and played with the children. At the end of the day, there was a giant dodge ball game. The nonprofit’s organizers were ecstatic with the volunteer hours. Employees left feeling they made a difference by showing the children there were adults who cared about them.
