JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (July 15, 2014) – Members of the ETSU women’s basketball team and coaching staff visited One Acre Café of Johnson City on Monday to lend a helping hand.
“There was no better way for our players to greet me upon my return from the Caribbean Basketball Championships than with a day of service at One Acre Café,” said ETSU head coach Brittney Ezell. “I love and appreciate our ETSU players’ willingness and desire to serve the people of Washington County.”
One Acre Café is a non-profit community restaurant which has been established to provide a means by which all can participate in addressing the growing hunger issues of the day. This is a place where all in the community can gather to eat healthy delicious food and strengthen our community by offering hope through the enjoyment of a meal.
Participating volunteers engaged in activities such as serving food, bussing/cleaning tables, washing and drying dishes as well as other housekeeping tasks. Members of the women’s basketball program also previously took some time to help at the restaurant on April 15.
“One Acre Café is a wonderful place that fills your heart the moment you walk in the door and we are honored to continue to support them in their mission of service to our community,” said Ezell. “I would encourage all Buccaneer fans to stop by One Acre Café. Great food, incredible mission and message!"
