The annual Spring Clean is an opportunity for members of the football team to help area residents with chores, including yard work, cleaning out a garage, or working around the house or business, for a donation. For the safety of the players, we do not allow them to use power equipment or power tools.

According to head football coach, Brian Weinrich, Family Promise was chosen after an article on Fort Thomas Matters highlighted the shelter as the only all-inclusive family shelter in northern Kentucky.

Family Promise’s focus is to keep families together. Local churches host the families on a rotating basis. For one week the families will eat dinner, spend the night on cots and air mattresses, and eat breakfast at the host church. Volunteers provide and prepare home-cooked meals.
Members of Family Promise meet with families helping them find employment and social services. They also help families create budgets. The goal is for adult family members to find jobs and save money while in the program, so that they have enough money when they graduate from the program to put down a deposit and first month's rent on an apartment. Family Promise also provides transportation to doctor appointments, job interviews and more during a family's stay.
Last year the team's Spring Clean benefitted Fort Thomas resident and Fort Thomas Matters contributor, Jennifer Summer.
