DURHAM -- Led by the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Duke 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. Through the students’ generosity, three families benefitted this year.
SAAC has been involved with Project Share for over 10 years and has continued to raise 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. On Friday, December 6th student athletes were able to actually hand-deliver the presents to two of the families. These three families will now have a brighter and more cheerful holiday season!
