Lurgio Middle School team volunteers at New Horizons

BEDFORD – The Ross A. Lurgio Middle School girls basketball team kicked off the season of giving by volunteering their time at New Horizons in Manchester.

The girls handed out turkeys and boxes filled with everything to complete a Thanksgiving meal.

"It’s a special time of the year for everyone, and the girls understand that being a student-athlete goes beyond the court and the classroom," said Jeremy Zelanes, Lurgio head coach.

"New Horizons is a wonderful organization, and we were happy to be part of their mission of providing food to the people in need."
