Ladies Softball Visits The Providence House
Thursday, November 13, 2008

SHREVEPORT -- Each year the Centenary Ladies softball team finds time out of their off season schedule to volunteer for those in need. This year’s stint of community service projects began with a visit to Shreveport’s local Providence House on Wednesday evening.


While at The Providence House, the Ladies took part in assisting the cafeteria staff during dinner with needed responsibilities. Several members worked together to serve dinner to those in need, while others made dinner plates, filled drinks, and washed dishes during their visit.


“The Providence House is a worthwhile organization for this community. We have had the privilege of being able to volunteer for them in the past and we look forward to helping out in anyway we can in the near future,” said Head Softball Coach Mark Montgomery.


The community involvement provided by the Ladies enables The Providence House to serve the community while still remaining a positive place for families in need. Centenary College’s strong commitment to this community continues to strive with the help of student-athletes from several teams.


Many of the teams pride themselves in being more than just athletes on the field. At Centenary, they strive to work hard in the classroom while still maintaining a strong work ethic within our community.


The Providence House of Shreveport is a residential development center for homeless families with children, providing comprehensive support services for improving the family structure and moving the family into independent living to break the homeless cycle.

The Ladies will take part in several more service projects during the holiday season as they revisit Shriners Hospital and the Northwest Food Bank before hitting the field for games in February.
