Gridders pay forward with community service project

Members of the Carrollton Warriors football team load mulch into a wheelbarrow as part of a community service project at the Carroll County Health Dept.

Members of the Carrollton football team completed a community service project at the Carroll County Health Dept. last week.

Coach Phil Mauro said the boys pulled weeds and mulched at the Moody Ave. agency.

“We basically gave the place a face lift,” said Mauro, who pitched in and helped his team. “This project is a way for us to pay forward and help make a difference in our community.”

Mauro said Carrollton sports teams recently sponsored a blood drive to benefit the wife of a Warrior football coach at the high school. Fifty pints of blood were drawn during the event.

Mauro expressed appreciation to everyone who helped make the event a success.

“Students Jaret Lane and Mac Tubaugh organized the event, Coach Amanda Tressa and the volleyball team helped out as well as the parents. We appreciate the help of everyone and the support of the community,” he said.
