COLUMBUS, Ohio – Trading in their clubs for hammers and paint brushes, members of the Ohio State women’s golf team spent the day Saturday, Jan. 14, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity-Greater Columbus.
Helping to put the finishing touches on a home in the Columbus area, the entire team and assistant coach Lisa Strom painted trim, filled nail holes and installed hardware and door handles. Organized by junior Rachel Rohanna, the event was just one piece of the community service performed by the team so far this season. The Buckeyes, who notched 95 service hours fall quarter, also worked with a senior center, made holiday cards for the troops and volunteered time with Project Mentor, Operation Buckeye and the Second and Seven Foundation.
“It was a neat opportunity to be able to give back to the community that always gives so much to Ohio State,” Strom said. “It was one of those experiences where the girls left feeling just as good as the people they were helping. It was very humbling and a great way to give back and make the community better.”
