It's not all about you
While having a good time is a high priority, serving others is also one of the four values of Good Sports. Several years ago a connection was made to a local nursing home. Regular visits have become a popular part of the program. Watching the kids integrate naturally (new kids apprehensively) is a treat but the best is after the visit when they talk about (and express) the joy they felt. "Give and you shall receive...." someone once said.
During the pandemic, large gatherings have been severely limited. Answering a call to meet a felt need, GoodSports staff and volunteers shopped for seniors, transported them to medical appointments, delivered prescriptions and made life a little easier for our home-bound friends.
