SHU Student Athletes Participate in "Cards for the Troops" Through SAAC
(Fairfield, CT) - SAAC took part in a special holiday project, leading SHU’s more than 800 student athletes in a holiday card drive for United States Military personal stationed overseas during the holidays. “Cards for the Troops” became an important and worthwhile endeavor for SAAC.
“It is a privilege to be able to take the time to reflect on what our armed services does for us, especially over the holiday time. To do something for such heroic people who do so much for us is an important reminder for how fortunate we are and how much they sacrifice for us.”
The cards were sent in coordination with a group called “Friends of Our Troops”, which leads a nationwide initiative in organizing the distribution of holiday cards to military serving overseas during the holidays.
