On the final day of 2019, skaters from the Nashville Figure Skating Club gave back to their community and volunteered at the Nashville Rescue Mission.
These thirteen NFSC skaters represented our club of over 130 members and ranged in age from ten to seventeen. Today, they helped serve a hot lunch to around 400 men from the Metropolitan Nashville area.
I have a newfound respect for all of the people at the school cafeteria! It was a lot harder than I thought!-Mara, 11
For many of the skaters, today was their first experience volunteering at the mission and having firsthand experience with so many in need. It was truly an amazing opportunity for our skaters to be together over the holidays and to provide some hope and nutritious food to help for a better tomorrow.
Following the event, Ching Ching Zhang, Jr Club President, said:
I’m really glad we did it and I hope we get to go again. I think this was a great way to close out 2019.-Ching Ching, Jr Club President
We hope so too! Today was a successful partnership with two Nashville staples that impacted the minds and hearts of all those there. Thank you NFSC skaters for being a part of this event! Thank you Nashville Rescue Mission for welcoming us!
Special thanks to our parent volunteers, the NFSC Board of Directors, and the NFSC Junior Club who helped make today happen.
If you would like to help make someone’s tomorrow better, we encourage you to reach out to the Nashville Rescue Mission to see how you too can support this cause.
This was a very positive experience. I was extremely impressed with the operation. The mission is ran well and their staff were amazing.-Erica Edwards, NFSC Board Member
