-- Professional Indoor Football player, Shannon Warren, spent three days after Christmas working with the YMCA and the annual Wonderful Winter Break Camp. This holiday camp was designed to help parents who are still in need of care for their child/children during the holiday season.
Shannon Warren has been a part of the YMCA since he was a young kid in San Antonio. He attended as a child and now enjoys spending time there with the children. Shannon is currently signed to the Bismarck Bucks in the Champions Indoor Football League (CIF) and felt that before he reported for training camp in February this was the perfect opportunity to give back to his community.
"I enjoyed being able to volunteer at the camp," said Warren. "The reason is that I know there are many kids without food, shelter, families, etc. I volunteer each year to feed children at different organizations, especially those in group homes and in foster care. I really want to start a foundation to help kids and seniors."
