Donating books and donating their time! Thirteen Kilbourne Lacrosse players volunteered at "Read Across America" on Friday night (February 28th) at the Worthington Community Center. The annual national event helps collect donated books and stages local activities for children all across the nation.
Kilbourne Lacrosse gathered and donated more than 400 books tonight! All books collected will be donated to Nationwide Children's Hospital. In addition to collecting books to donate, Kilbourne Lacrosse players conducted an open gym to play with the kids and taught them some basics about lacrosse.
The event continues to grow every year in Worthington. The community center estimated there were more than 600 people who attended tonight. Another successful and fun 'Man-Up' community service effort in the "books"!
