On Saturday October 24 the Penn State Greater Allegheny Athletic Department conducted an All Sports Camp at Auberle in McKeesport, PA. Over 60 student-athletes and coaches volunteered in the department's first community service act of the semester. Boys and girls ages 8-16 participated in Baseball/Softball, Basketball, and Volleyball.
?This was a tremendous experience not only for the student-athletes, but also for our coaching staff. We were so grateful that we had an opportunity not only to share our expertise in sports, but make a difference in young person?s life,? said Athletic Director Jim Chester.
According to their website, "Auberle has been dedicated to the mission of caring for and healing abused, neglected and troubled children throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania for over 50 years. They have been able to help thousands of children and their families through our residential care, foster care, emergency shelter, in-home intervention, education and community programs. Family preservation, the reuniting of families in a positive home environment and preparing children to be responsible adults are the ultimate goals of Auberle." www.auberle.org/about_auberle.html
