Throughout the upcoming 2015/16 school year, the Miramar High School football team will begin multiple community service projects geared towards helping the homeless. Their first community service project     will take place at the Miami Rescue Mission’s downtown Miami campus, where students will not only help feed the homeless but also assist with cleanup and organizing the facility. It is the team’s hope that     through this type of continued community service, they consistently build character both on and off the field. 

The team is serving the Miami Rescue Mission alongside the non-profit SHEAR Inc., which provides a variety of community service needs, with special emphasis on education and mentoring to help better lives     and communities.
