Central High basketball team volunteers at food bank

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Central High School basketball players spent part of their Friday giving back to their community.

Players volunteered at the Mid-South Food Bank.

In 2017, the food bank distributed more than 13 million pounds of food to more than 220,000 people.

On Friday, the Central High basketball team helped sort donations.

“We come out today to help the people that are in need,” said player Xavier Joubert. “We just want to give back to the community. We love helping out. This is a team bonding thing we need to do on a normal basis.”

The team is also planning to volunteer at churches in the community.
