The “Good Book” teaches that it is better to give than receive. Under the direction of head baseball coach Joey Kemp, who organized the mission, members of the Weston Wolves baseball team learned what that lesson is all about this past week when handed out Christmas presents and spent time with patients and students of the Little Helpers Pediatric Day Center and LPECC in Ruston.
Little Helpers Pediatric Day Center is a health center that specializes in caring for children with medically complex diagnoses or who may be medically fragile while the LPECC is an early childhood center that provides educational services to preschool age children. The baseball players were able to bring Christmas cheer to some children and learn some valuable lessons about giving back to others.
Senior Davis Tolar said “ It was nice to be able to see a smile on the kids’ faces and it made me realize how blessed I really am.”
The trip also made an impact on the two other seniors.
Caleb Waters states “To be able to deliver presents to the kids felt really special. It made our team think about what all we have in our lives.”
Kaden Shirley also said “That delivering the presents was so exciting because it was fun to see the smile on their faces and to see how surprised they were. Giving the presents to the kids was the best time of my life.”
Congratulations and much appreciation to the entire Weston baseball team for helping make this Christmas special to those who are less fortunate.
