Giving back and lending a hand to the community are values that have been instilled in the players of the LBWCC baseball program.

On Thursday, several players were on hand to help set up for today’s career fair at the Kiwanis Center.

“We couldn’t get this done without their help,” LBWCC assistant baseball coach Brandon Ware said. “Setting up all the tables and booths, there just wouldn’t be enough time to get it done without them.”

Along with helping set up for the event, Ware said that the players will be back today to help people load and unload cars.

“One group came in today to help with the set up the tables and help business set up,” Ware said. “After the career fair is finished, there will be another group that will come in and help break it all down.”

Besides helping out with the career fair, the players also dedicate time to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and the Miracle League of Covington County, as well various other community events.

“It’s important for them to see different aspects of life,” Ware said. “They also really enjoy it. Habitat and Miracle League are probably the two things they enjoy the most.”

This past fall, Ware said, the team helped complete a home in Florala for Habitat for Humanity.

“We started doing Habitat for Humanity a while back,” Ware said. “This past fall, we were part of the Habitat project in Florala, and that was the sixth time we have done one of those. The guys really enjoy helping with Habitat projects.”
