The Morgan County High School (MCHS) Football team is stepping off the field from summer practice and into Madison Health and Rehab Center, helping patients and staff however they can. Coach Aubrey Fortson is excited for his team to give time in this way.
“Today is our first day of Community Service, and it is going to take place every Wednesday. We are just coming in today to give service back to the community and put a smile on the patient’ faces.” The football team and the coaching staff visited patients in their rooms, went on walks with the patients outside, and spoke and showed their faces around the Health and Rehab Center, “We are just trying to put a smile on their face,” said Fortson. The football team plans on doing a form of Community Service every Wednesday. Next week they are headed to the hospital and on the June 21 they will help at the Sheriff’s department. “This community service is also to show our kids to appreciate life and how to give back. We also just want to thank the people who work here for the time and support they give to our football team,” explained Fortson. “We are going to have two weeks off so July 12th we are going to try to go to the Fire Department.”
