Fever Players Take Green Ideas to Boys & Girls Club


On Thursday, Fever stars Shannon Bobbitt and Tangela Smith provided an assist to the Lilly Boys & Girls Club by helping to plant a garden. In conjunction with WNBA Green Week, Smith and Bobbitt helped educate 20 members from the Boys & Girls Club, aged 7-10, on how to conserve, recycle, and live a “greener” life.

The group started the day outdoors, where they placed several plants in a bed surrounding the front side of the building. It was an opportunity for the players and the kids to work together, while providing an outstanding teaching lesson for the kids on what it takes to keep and maintain a garden.

After, the crew moved inside, where Smith and Bobbitt taught the children about reducing, re-using and recycling. The pair of Fever players also shared some fun facts about recycling before signing autographs for each child on a Fever team picture.

The WNBA is committed to a long-term environmental plan through the implementation of sustainable business practices and procedures that decrease the league’s carbon footprint and contribute to a clean, healthy environment. The WNBA Green Initiative is an innovative program designed to reduce the environmental impact of the league’s operations.
In collaboration with WNBA Green Week, the Fever will conduct Go Green Night presented by WISH-TV’s Indy Style on Saturday, June 25, when it hosts the Connecticut Sun at 7 p.m.
