On Wednesday morning, members of the Seattle Mariners will join high school students from a national youth volunteer program to hand out a three-day supply of emergency food to customers at the Volunteers of America Community Resource Center at 9041 Greenwood Ave. N. (commonly referred to as the Greenwood Food Bank.)

The students are from Western Washington Action Teams, a national youth volunteer program administered by Volunteers of America and the Major League Baseball Players Trust.

The players and students will distribute food to customers and also will sort and bag food that will be delivered to home-bound seniors.

Administered by Volunteers of America and the Major League Baseball Players Trust, the Action Team program encourages young people throughout the United States to volunteer in their communities. Action Teams, consisting of Major League baseball players and student Team Captains from area high schools, are working together in cities nationwide to encourage young people to get involved in their communities by volunteering.
