USF Football & Basketball Teams Give Back with Habitat for Humanity

PINELLAS PARK – The University of South Florida Athletics Department recently provided hands-on opportunities for its student-athletes to give back to the community. The partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco Counties brought coaches, players, and alumni from the university’s football and basketball programs to volunteer on build sites in Pinellas Park.

On Friday, Sept. 24, the USF Men’s Basketball team and coaching staff were on-site volunteering alongside Cynthia Thompson, a future Habitat homeowner. Thompson is a single mom to her 10-year-old daughter, Abbey, who is a cancer survivor.

Earlier this week, the USF Football team decided to jump in. Volunteers from the team were on multiple sites in Tellor Estates. Soon to be home to 75 families, Tellor Estates is the affiliate’s largest development to date. USF student-athletes completed projects such as landscaping, painting, and installing hurricane shutters.
