In the interest of giving back to their community, Rocky Point High School’s junior varsity and varsity baseball teams continued their tradition of volunteering at Maureen’s Haven Homeless Shelter in Cutchogue this spring.

During this visit, the team, team managers, and coaches helped over 30 individuals have a hot dinner, a clean bed, and an inviting environment for a safe night’s rest. The teammates set up the location, made beds, set the tables, prepared the kitchen, and packed lunch bags for them to leave with the next morning.

Additionally, the students collected many new items for the shelter visitors, including socks, rain ponchos, toiletries, homemade cookies, brownies, festive bags of holiday chocolates and bunnies. They also collected beef jerky, cheese crackers, peanut butter crackers, protein bars and water bottles that the individuals could eat on days when they have no food. Lastly, the team collected over 80 five-dollar gift cards for fast food.

The team has volunteered in a similar fashion at the shelter two times per year for the past four years.
