Reagan Football working hard for the community

July 24, 2015

Taking time out of their busy summers, the Ronald Reagan High School Freshman, JV and Varsity football teams continued the Rattler tradition of giving back to the local San Antonio community.  Summer service projects included working for Habitat for Humanity as well as the San Antonio Food Bank.

The team arrived at Coleman Ridge on the wet morning of June 19th and labored thru the mud at the Habitat community. Teamwork was used to complete tasks such as cleaning and weeding empty lots, installing moisture barriers on house frames, and installing siding.  In addition, on July 15th the team volunteered at the Food Bank where they sorted through over 16,000 lbs. of canned food and nearly 12,000 lbs. of frozen/pre-packaged food. All together the Rattlers were responsible for processing food that will provide approximately 21,739 meals to people across San Antonio.

The Reagan High School football team is honored to partner with these organizations. When complete, Habitat for Humanity will have built 185 homes in the Coleman Ridge for low-income families in San Antonio. The Food Bank’s mission is to fight hunger in Southwest Texas through food distribution, programs, education and advocacy. Their programs and services reach 58,000 individuals each week.

Congratulations to the Reagan High School football players for continuing the tradition of excellence in leadership and community and for their hard work on and off the football field!
