GSU Women’s Basketball Leads Division In Community Service Hours

The COVID-19 pandemic did not hamper the community service efforts of Georgia Southern Women’s Basketball in 2020-21, as the Eagles ranked first among NCAA Division I women’s basketball programs according to the Helper Helper community service app.


The women’s basketball team logged 322 hours across the 2020-21 academic year volunteering at the Statesboro Food Bank, helping feed a pair of local Bulloch County families for Thanksgiving, reading books to local and nationwide elementary schools through the Read Across America program, assisting with the Trick or Treat Statesboro outreach program and also volunteering on a bi-weekly basis at the Christian Social Ministry Thrift Store & Food Pantry in Statesboro.


The Eagles ranked first among NCAA Division I women’s basketball teams via Helper Helper in total hours volunteered, having a 100% participation rate among student-athletes and also registering a 21.4 volunteer hours per student-athlete rate.

Helper Helper tracks the community service efforts of more than 400 colleges and universities nationwide among all divisions. The Helper Helper platform was created by a former student-athlete to make it easier for athletic departments to help students get out in the community. Over the years, hundreds of student-athlete development professionals have shaped the platform that exists today. It’s proved to enhance the student-athlete experience and take student-athlete development to the next level.
