Platform Elite has been committed to "training the whole person" since its inception. We feel strongly that it is vital to teach our student-athletes to give back to our community through service. Starting in the 2017-2018 season, every team and player in the club will perform at least 8 hours of service through a team service project. This page is dedicated to recognizing their efforts.
Platform 14White volunteered with Westend Initiative working with neighborhood youth. Way to serve your community 14White!
Platform 12-1 and 12Navy spent time volunteering at Rick's House of Hope.
Rick's House of Hope is the regional center for grieving and traumatized youth. They provide support groups for children of all ages and developmental levels.
The Platform teams baked cookies for support groups, organized the game closets, and painted canvases with inspirational messages to hang in some of the therapy rooms.
Nice job 12-1 & 12Navy! Way to help bring healing to hurting youth.
17Adidas spent some time playing Bingo and visiting with the residents at Grand Haven, an assisted living facility in Eldridge, IA. It is still not understood who had more fun - 17Adidas or the residents. 17Adidas also prepared and brought treats for the Bingo winners. In the end, everyone was a winner and there were enough treats for all to enjoy.
Nice job 17Adidas! Way to bring joy to your neighbors.
16Navy volunteered at the River Bend Foodbank. During their time in the facility, the team packed several hundred boxes with various food items then stacked them on several pallets for shipment.
In addition to boxing items, 16Navy also was assigned the task of sorting through donated items and tossing out those that were too damaged to be used.
Well done 16Navy! Way to help serve your community.
