Thursday before the opening game, I got an email from Danielle with ECU Athletics about an opportunity.  Little did I know, 48 hours later we would end up in the ECU football field receiving a giant $5,000 check!  What a surprise!

It turns out, ECU Student Athletes won an award for service hours through the Fiesta Bowl.  These young men and women are committed to engaging with their community and being a presence for good in the city of Greenville.  What an amazing gift!  In recognition of that spirit of community engagement, they were recognized nationally and received an award.  Part of that award was to select a non-profit that they would like to give a gift to and they chose Third Street Education Center!  What a blessing!

We are so thankful for the love of the ECU Athletes as they help us transform generations in Greenville, NC.

Go Pirates!
