MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - Working as part of Dr. Joe Schwartz' marketing class on the Georgia College & State University campus, members of the No. 6 Bobcat tennis team helped raise awareness for Habitat for Humanity's ReStore in Milledgeville.
Student-athletes Francis Yoshimoto, Erick Siqueira, Joao Casagrande and Max Beliankou joined with graduate assistant athletic trainer Keith Bate to pass out 10 percent off coupons around campus to drum up business for the local charity.
"The people we met with from Habitat said their main goal was to get awareness for the ReStore," said Yoshimoto. "We thought that the Georgia College campus was a great place to start."
The ReStore helps generate funds for the Baldwin County Habitat for Humanity organization, taking donations of gently used toys, appliances, glassware, books and much more, reselling them with all profits to benefit Habitat in the local community.
The facility is located at 730 North Wayne Street in Milledgeville.
