Classmates Donate Lunches to Riverview Medical Center
June 4, 2020
While many CBA students were not able to finish their community service work for 2020, that doesn’t mean Academy men have stopped thinking about their communities.
Stuck in their homes for the past few months, juniors Kevin Henderson and Joseph DiSpirito had the itch to do some good for the heroes on the frontlines who are battling the COVID-19 virus.
The two classmates have been friends since the third grade, so it was a no-brainer to team up for a socially-distant community outreach project.
After bouncing ideas off teachers and administrators, the duo settled on organizing a lunch donation for the essential workers at Riverview Medical Center. They were hoping that their friends and teammates would chip-in to reach $500 for the lunch donation.
With the help of their classmates, as well as the track & field and golf teams, they raised an outstanding $2,290 that went towards Jersey Mike’s Subs boxed lunches. On May 28th, Henderson and DiSpirto delivered the sub boxes to Riverview for the doctors, nurses and healthcare workers to enjoy.
Henderson and DiSpirto said that it felt incredible to do some service work amid the pandemic and that the medical center was extremely grateful for the CBA community’s efforts.
