Mundelein rallies to the cause

Mundelein football players lent out a helping hand to the less fortunate less than 24 hours after playing a tough football game.

Team members volunteered to help the Lions Club by collecting donations outside of local businesses.

“More than 50 boys volunteered and collected over $2,000”, said Steve Kovac, the Lion’s liaison to Mundelein High School.

Both numbers represent new records for the 10 years that the team has been working with the Lions Club.

“We want to thank the boys and the coaches for, without their efforts, this collection would have not attained the monies necessary for the Lions to help Mundelein’s needy citizens with eye glasses and hearing problems.” Kovac said.

“It’s a joy to see these young men and all the effort they put into their school work, practices, and then to contribute some of the little personal time they have. It speaks volumes to the input they’re getting from home and these coaches.”
