BRISTOL, Tenn. – The King University men's and women's golf teams took a break from the golf course to help and serve the local Bristol community. Head coach, Brian Kamm, facilitated two volunteer days for the golf teams to work with the Salvation Army in Bristol, Tennessee.
The men's and women's golf teams gave their time January 18-19 from 5:00-7:00 pm. The student-athletes served food for the first hour, then waited for the dining hall to clear and cleaned up the dining commons after everyone had moved downstairs.
Alex Summers, a redshirt freshman on the men's golf team, had this to say about the experience. "It's important for us as a team to give back to the community that has helped shape our institution."
"I thought it was really good that we got to help out at the Salvation Army, and I think that it's something we should do much more often," said Autumn Bergendahl, a member of the women's golf team.
"Seeing how the people at the Salvation Army warmed up to the men's and women's teams showed how much a few hours of our time can mean to others," Kamm said about the experience.
