Thunderbolts Give Back to Community
The Pius X (www.piusx.net)Swim and Dive Team embraced their school motto to “restore all things in Christ.” Inspired to give back to the community the student athletes and their families cooked and served lunch at the Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach on December 27. The Thunderbolts are led by Head Coach Mike Witt and Assistant Coaches Devin Jensen and Sheila Boothe.
Team families purchased and donated the meal. Spaghetti, garlic bread, fruit, and brownies were served on the cold December day. The team also served, cleaned-up, and helped sort and organize donated clothing. The effort was led by Sally Heasty whose daughter, Morgan Heasty, is a junior on the team.
Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach (MTKO) is a faith-based hunger relief and outreach program that was established in 1992. Devoted to serving homeless and near homeless men, women, and children, MTKO provides meals twice daily, every day of the year.
