400 high school athletes support their community

George Washington Carver Elementary School in St. Mary’s County was presented with a surprise gift of back-to-school supply kits for their students in need. What made the gift even more meaningful was that it came through the efforts of 400 high school student-athletes from across the state who are learning the importance of leading and serving their communities.

The back to school supply kits were assembled at the annual MPSSAA Student-Athlete Leadership Conference which was held at Gaithersburg High School on Thursday, August 4th and funded by an Allstate Foundation grant.

“The Allstate Foundation is very proud to support this phenomenal effort involving MPSSAA and our Maryland student-athletes.”, said Shaundra Turner Jones, Allstate spokesperson. “We believe a lifelong commitment to positively impacting the community begins at a young age and we hope the athletes will return to their schools inspired to lead and empower other students to take on similar projects in their communities.”

Additional Back-to-School kits were also provided to the following elementary schools:

  • Lincoln Elementary School (Frederick County),
  • Gaithersburg Elementary School (Montgomery County),
  • Hyattsville Elementary School (Prince Georges County),
  • Swansfield Elementary School (Howard County),
  • Shady Spring Elementary School (Baltimore County),
  • G. Lisby Elementary School at Hillsdale (Harford County),
