Spreading Spirit Beyond School
Posted by Stumps Spirit on September 24, 2010
Your cheerleading squad shines with school spirit at every game and competition. Want another way to show your enthusiasm? Get involved in your community! There are a number of ways for awesome cheerleaders like you to make a difference. From nursing home visits to food drives to charity fundraisers, cheerleaders can make a huge impact on those around them.
A squad from St. Joseph Middle School in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, did just that. The cheerleaders got together and volunteered to sing Christmas carols at several nursing homes and hospitals in the area. But they didn’t stop there – the squad continued its visits, playing games, singing songs and most of all, making friends!
This is just one example of a cheerleading squad’s commitment to its community. Do you have a story? Have your cheerleaders done something to inspire and support those around them? We would love to hear about it! Send your story to us (pictures are welcome). Your efforts will encourage others to get involved and make their community a better place.
