The Central Michigan football program's April community outreach tour stopped at the Maplewood Assisted Living Center on Friday.

The Chippewas' defensive linemen spent time during the afternoon visiting with residents and assisting in the center's weekly bingo game, which is part of a weekly schedule of recreation, activities and exercise sessions the facility hosts.

Members of the football program also will visit Maplewood later this week for the facility's all-resident birthday party.

The football program's community outreach tour is being organized by the C.A.R.E. program, which organizes community service projects and events for CMU student-athletes. As part of the C.A.R.E. program, CMU student-athletes have volunteered more than 3,300 hours and raised more than $8,000 during the past academic year.
