    Monday was not an average day on the road for us. We’re in the middle of a long eight game road trip and flew into Washington, D.C. late Sunday night after tough game in Toronto. Fortunately, Monday had a couple opportunities for us that kept the team’s energy high despite the minimal sleep.

    This Sunday, Jan 24, ABC will air an extended two-hour episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, about an extraordinary story of hope from the west side of Buffalo. In November 2009, the show came to one of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in our nation’s third poorest city to build a green home for the family of Delores Powell. What happened next has never happened in the history of the show. More than 6,300 volunteers turned out to help, building not only a home for one deserving family but transforming an entire community through service.

    Yesterday was the Martin Luther King Day of Service - hundreds of thousands of volunteers across the country participated in service projects. Here is David's story. I spent my MLK Day volunteering at Bruce Monroe Elementary School with Greater DC Cares. Armed with only barebones project details, I wasn’t quite sure how I would be serving. I did know that we would beautify the school. I was also fairly sure that paint brushes would be prominently involved. I was excited for the day.
