On Friday, December 9th, the members of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) held their annual holiday party for 15 deserving children from the Building Hope Community Life Center. Every year, SAAC puts together this holiday party to reward the children for doing well in school. They had the chance to meet with the members of SAAC, play games, decorate cookies, eat pizza, and received a gift. The party was a success and every child had a huge smile on their faces when they left.
On Wednesday, December 7th, 75 student-athletes from all 17 ECU athletics teams participated at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Greenville with the Salvation Army. Our student-athletes were bringing holiday cheer with their red aprons, red kettles, and ringing the bells to help raise money for the Salvation Army.
