San Diego - Last week Gamepoint players & family members participated in their "1st Annual Week of Giving." Participation included volunteering at the Salvation Army in Oceanside, along with serving meals to the homeless at the San Diego Rescue Mission in downtown.
"I was very proud of our organization and the amount of volunteers we had step up to help those in need." says Gamepoint Director Charlie Mercado. "Helping others is something I would like to incorporate into the program year around, not just the holidays."
In addition to Gamepoint players, parents and other family members were among those volunteering their time. "It was an eye opening experience for our family" says Gamepoint parent Cara Morris whose family served meals at the Rescue Mission.
The Gamepoint "Week of Giving" is the start to the club's initiative to be more active in helping others in the community.
