WARREN, NJ - The season of giving has come to Warren. The Watchung Hills Hustlin’ Warriors Baseball team is in the off season, but they are certainly in the season of giving. Members of the baseball team have been spending their days helping others in need throughout Somerset County. 

On Monday, December 19, team members volunteered to wrap presents and load holiday gifts at Our Lady of the Mount Church and on Wednesday, December 21,  team members gathered at the St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen in Plainfield to help serve meals and deliver toys to area families. 

"Thanks to all that helped out with this community service effort, especially Robin and Nancy for keeping this wonderful tradition going! " said WHRHS baseball coach Joe Tremarco. "Please know how grateful we are for all your hard work! Giving back is such an important part of the values we try and instill in your young men and there's no better time than the holidays to give back.....I truly believe it helps mold these guys and gets them ready for the bigger game.....Life. I wish everyone a happy and healthy holidays and am looking forward to warmer weather and hopefully green pastures in March! Stay well!"
