MOUNT PLEASANT - Central Michigan's football program wrapped up its April community outreach tour with four stops around Mount Pleasant last weekend.

The Chippewas worked two shifts at the Isabella County Soup Kitchen Spring Fundraiser. CMU's linebackers served dinner from 4-6 p.m., while the tight ends served dinner and helped clean up from 6-8 p.m. The event annually helps raise funds for the soup kitchen to serve 300 continental breakfasts and 2,500 hot lunches on a monthly basis.

On Friday afternoon, CMU's offensive lineman visited Maplewood Assisted Living Elderly Care Center for the facility's monthly birthday party. The Chippewas visited with residents and family members, sang "Happy Birthday" and helped serve cake to the birthday honorees.

Also on Friday, CMU's running backs and defensive backs visited Renaissance Public School Academy's after-school program. The Chippewas helped fulfill the program's need for college students willing to interact with the students, help with homework and serve as positive role models.

In all, the CMU football program made seven different community appearances during April, the final month of the academic year at CMU. The appearances were coordinated through the C.A.R.E. program, which organizes community outreach programs for CMU student-athletes.
