Centenary Swim Teams Volunteer
Tuesday, September 5, 2006

SHREVEPORT, La. -- Twenty-one student athletes from the Centenary men’s and women’s swimming teams recently volunteered their time for Volunteers of America.

Taking place Saturday, Aug. 26, in the Allendale area of Shreveport, members of the Gents and Ladies swim teams volunteered during the construction of a Fuller Center Home. This home is one of the 60 planned for Shreveport as part of a joint effort involving The Fuller Center for Housing, Shreveport-Bossier Community Renewal and Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Louisiana.

The homes are intended for needy families and those displaced by last year’s hurricane.

In this instance, the Centenary swim teams were helping a member of the Shreveport community who is disabled and relocated from Bogalusa due to Hurricane Katrina.
