Since he was 6, Edwards has helped the Greentown Lions Club pack, load and deliver food to needy families during the Christmas season, an annual event that delivers to over 200 families. He also volunteered for the Howard County United Way and spent several hours unloading trailers of children’s books, which were hauled, unloaded and organized on the shelves for the people of Howard County.

Caleb King, Westfield

Caleb King (9) of Westfield High School celebrates after his team won a Sectional Championship match on Friday November 5, 2021 at Westfield High School.  The Westfield Shamrocks beat the Southeast Hamilton Royals 24-22.

King raised over $ 15,000 for Alex’s lemonade stand in an effort to fight childhood cancer. His own initiative, “Kicking it with Caleb”, has raised funds for every kick he has taken during the season. The Westfield team, school and community came together to support King’s cause.

The Fort Wayne Snider Team

The Snider soccer team participates in a service program throughout their four years of participation in the soccer program. Each class is twinned with a local service organization that they serve over their four years. The senior class trains first year students to take over the organization. Seniors and freshmen work with Erin’s House, a center for grieving families who have lost a family member or loved one. Second-year students volunteer for Vincent Village, an organization that works with local homeless families. Juniors attend with Turnstone, a facility that works with the physically disabled. While the service program, the goal is to provide players with the opportunity to experience what it’s like to help someone else throughout the calendar year.
