RiverKings Community Development Weekly Recap

SOUTHAVEN, Miss – RiverKings stayed out of the head this week spending most of their time indoors helping local communities and church groups. Representatives from the team visited Camp Bold Tuesday and maintained fast paced action with the campers in 4 exciting rounds of Sticks are for Kids. Wednesday saw the inaugural visit to Raleigh Methodist Church and their monthly food pantry. Representatives helped bag and carry groceries and donations for those in need. Raleigh Methodist Church feeds about 40 families of 4 during their once-monthly food pantry and even has an extensive clothing donation center and book center. 

On Friday morning, July 14th, the RiverKings stopped by Harding Academy- White Station for the third time this summer. The group of 25 campers practiced more advanced fundamental drills during this visit, learning teamwork, passing, and advanced positioning. A larger group awaited the RiverKings on Friday afternoon when they visited Southaven Intermediate School and the YMCA Summer Camp. Both locations were able to use what they learned to compete in scrimmages against their fellow camp-goers. 

The RiverKings remain committed to helping local charities, church groups, and community programs through their RiverKings ReachOut program. Next week, the RiverKings will make stops at Camp Bold, Raleigh Methodist Church, YMCA Summer Camps, and Harding Academy. To schedule a mascot appearance for your next event, Sticks are for Kids day for your youth group, or any community appearance which may help your program gain exposure, give a call to Community Development Coordinator TJ Chillot at 662-253-0177.
