S4EA Executive Director Thanks Athletes, Vols & Donors for your Support in 2020

S4EA Executive Director, Walter Jackson, thanks our athletes, families, friends, volunteers, coaches, and other supporters for your help in getting us through 2020 during the Coronavirus Pandemic. We learned to keep 6 ft apart, wear masks when near other people & wash our hands frequently. We had to come up with different type of activities during the Pandemic. We did Zoom Sports and Exercise Workouts Monday through Thursday. We did many Zoom social activities on weekends including Zoom dances, Talent Shows & Scavenger Hunts. On weekends we did a variety of Socially Distancing Parking Lot activities, including Drive-Thru Pancake Breakfast, Bingo Bash, Drive-Thru Halloween Trunk-or-Treat, Drive-In Movie Night, Fun-A-Rama, and Drive-Thru Holiday Lights. Volunteers and coaches helped at these various Socially Distancing and Zoom activities. Over 1,000 donors have given financial support to help make this a great program. Thank you for your support during these challenging times. Wishing you a Happy Holiday Season & I hope that we can see each other in person in 2021.
