Youth of Firetree Place Well-Served by Donation of Sports Gear
Students in Penn College’s exercise science major joined Judy Quinti, assistant professor of exercise science, in loading a delivery of sports equipment for Firetree Place, a community center just a few blocks from Penn College. The college offered equipment it no longer uses in Fitness & Lifetime Sports classes. In keeping with their career goals to promote wellness, the students delivered a pingpong table, paddles and balls; several badminton rackets with shuttlecocks; volleyballs; tennis balls; and goggles. The mission of Firetree Place is to engage youth through enrichment activities and to provide resources that will strengthen the community at large.
