DURHAM, N.C.—Led by the Duke Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Blue Devil student-athletes teamed up with the Duke Community Service Center’s Project Share to give back this holiday season. Project Share helps families in the Durham community who are in need of support by providing gifts and necessities during the holiday season. Through the students’ generosity three Durham families benefitted this year.
SAAC has been involved with Project Share for over 10 years and raised thousands of dollars. SAAC members purchased gifts with the money the student-athletes donated. Some examples of gifts include clothing, toys, and kitchen appliances. On December 2nd several student-athletes took time out of their busy days to wrap presents for these families. Four days later student-athletes delivered the presents to two of the families in person. These three families will now have a brighter and more cheerful holiday season!
