ECSU Cheer Visits Food Bank of Elizabeth City to Lend A Helping Hand

Nov. 17, 2017

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – The Elizabeth City State University cheer team visited the Food Bank of Elizabeth City to lend a helping hand bagging food for the less fortunate during the holidays with other student-athletes from the university on Thursday evening.

The cheerleaders bagged food items, particularly apples. The Food Bank provides food to the less fortunate so it was rewarding to be able to help in anyway, particularly since it is the holiday season.

"It was a good experience,” stated senior Justyn Smith. “I don't look at it as community service but as the ECSU community coming together as one to help those in need."
