(GREENSBORO, N.C.) — The Greensboro College men’s basketball team took a break from the hardcourt to spend time with children from Childcare Network #163 and Millis Road Elementary School over the holiday season.
The players and coaches spent two different mornings helping the children with various art projects, written and reading assignments, and a little outside fun before finishing up the morning with a pizza party.
“We all had a blast spending time with the children from both Childcare Network and Millis Road Elementary,” said head coach Bryan Galuski. “I am not sure who had more fun during those two days, my players or the children. The one thing I do know, is there were a lot of smiles during both visits.”
“It was a lot of fun,” assistant coach Jim Cantamessa said. “Our players really enjoyed themselves outside of their normal routine and it was really impressive to see how our players interacted with all of the children.”
According to Damian Dixon, “It was refreshing to see the smiles on the kids faces and to see how much they appreciated it.”
Luqman Tijani said, “It was nice to help local kids and have the opportunity to meet and spend time with them.”
Chakiris Moss added, “It was a good thing for people to see local college athletes who care about children and their future.”
