Team members helped replace siding, windows and paint on Carl Benson's home. Carl lives with three other men who are mentally disabled. Carl attends all of the team's home games, and helps out with cleanup and other tasks.

When the group home asked for help, the team huddled together and went to work.

“He has been to every game and every practice. He has become a friend to us. It should be a good project for us.”

“Not only helping the community out, it going to do a little team building for us.”

The materials for the remodel were donated or purchased with money from fund raisers.
