Cumberland County News

Athletes from Stillwater Christian Prep helped with storm relief last week in Fayetteville.

The students from the school have passed out supplies in Fayetteville, Wilmington, Jacksonville, and Spring Lake.

Their basketball coach says it’s part of their program to give back.

“When they leave here they have a knowledge of knowing that it’s more than basketball,” coach Tim Johnson said Wednesday. “It’s about giving back in our local communities. We see celebrities do it all the time but why can’t we do it as well?”

The students have also traveled to Florida to drop off supplies. and they’ve helped families clean up their homes and pick up debris.
