Westview Football works hard to give back to the community. Read about some of their efforts here.
On Saturday November 5th, we went to the Interfaith Community Center and served breakfast and lunch
to the homeless veterans that are living in temporary shelter there. We also deep cleaned the kitchen and dining
room, made 150 sack lunches and restocked the pantry.
View all the photos here.
Thanks so much for all of your support this year!
To all of the players/parents for the JV, Freshman and Varsity Teams:
A GREAT BIG thank you...we did it!
Thanks to all of your efforts, communication with neighbors, friends, fellow students, Facebook postings and more, Westview High School filled 4 gigantic red containers with high quality canned and boxed goods that will go directly to the San Diego Food Bank. This was our first annual canned food drive and in the end, I think we rocked it!
Dear Westview Players:
First of all, let me say WOW! You guys are amazing. After Hell Week, another difficult week of practices and the Fan Fest, we still managed to have 27 players show up for the Beach Clean Up wearing football gear and positive attitudes. I promised the boys I would send them totals of the trash we collected so please share this message with your player. Also, a big thanks to Coach Woodward for showing up on the beach on his only day off and supporting the players. Also, Stephanie MacGilfrey for taking photos and documenting the work. The boys looked really great combing the beach in their jerseys and many people stopped, asked where they were from and what they were doing. I got a personal compliment from an older lady about what "nice young men they were." So thanks for representing Westview so well.
We collected 872 pieces of trash
Most collected: 191 cigarette butts
Most Surprising: All the Capri sun plastic straw covers that blow off and find there way onto the sand
Weirdest things: Shoes, hat, fishing items, buried towels
Things to Note: The Rangers said a big thank you. Due to budget cuts, they can't clean the beach itself very often. We found Torrey Pines is a relatively clean beach - free from big pieces of trash - but there are plenty of little pieces that we picked up so they wouldn't make there way into the ocean.
Improvements Needed: Mrs. Bigelow needs a ladder or the back of Eric Beagle's Truck so she can actually be seen and heard above the sea of HUGE players!
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly...
