Exercise Science Department and Softball teamed up for Kids Food Basket

The GRCC Exercise Science Department Yoga Classes (Professor Melanie Schiele-Gady) and the GRCC Softball Team (Head Coach Paula Maloley) teamed up to give back to the Kids Food Basket. The GRCC students donated food items and also colored sack bags that will be stuffed with food for area Grand Rapids Children (each day the Kids Food Basket provides sack dinners to 6,000 children). The project was completed to provide a hands on experience of learning about the Path of Yoga: Karma Yoga which means selfless giving and also to connect the 6 Wellness Dimensions to the yoga classes and also how the Wellness Dimensions apply to the Kids Food Basket Project. How does providing sack dinners connect to the 6 Wellness Dimensions (Occupational, Physical, Social, Intellectual, Spiritual, and Emotional)? The GRCC Students were able to discuss how the project affected them in each Dimension of Wellness and also how this project will help the children in each of the Wellness Dimensions. The donation included 500 colored sack bags and close to 75 pounds of food. Thank you for making a difference!
