Teaming Up to Volunteer – Kansas Food Bank

Teaming Up to Volunteer

Harlond Beverly is a Wichita State University Masters student, a member of the men’s basketball team and, together with several of his teammates, a proud volunteer at the Kansas Food Bank.

“It’s something I really take pride in and just having the whole team there and knowing that we’re making a difference,” says Harlond.

The athletic department of Wichita State University began working to reach 1,000 hours of community service in Wichita, Kansas for the 2023/2024 academic year. Brooke Schultz, WSU studentathlete experience coordinator helped connect teams with a place to volunteer.

“Our student athletes have done a great job of being in the community this past [school year],” Brooke says, noting the goal was exceeded with 1,200 volunteer hours served in the fall
alone. “We’re really proud of all the work they have done.”

In 2023, Brooke connected with Kansas Food Bank and found us to be a great fit for larger groups to volunteer, and WSU volleyball, basketball and baseball teams began giving time with us — including Harlond’s team.

“It was really nice to be a part of something bigger than yourself and helping out in any way possible,” Harlond says.

We want to send our warmest thanks to all the student athletes of Wichita State University who have shared their time and talent to ensure our neighbors receive the healthy food all Kansans need!
