Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) member Mercy College, is rising up to support the people of South Carolina. The Mavericks have committed to helping out fellow ECAC DII Field Hockey member, Newberry College, in collecting items needed by those affected by the flooding in South Carolina.
Head Coach Kayte Kinsley and her sqaud are traveling south and trying to pack their charter bus before they go. The ECAC encourages all local institutions to get involved and support the South Carolina Community. All items need to be delivered to Mercy by Thursday October 15.
Here is a list of items needed:
Cases of bottled water
Baby and adult diapers
Feminine hygiene products
“In a time when other Americans are in need, we need to rise up as adults, coaches and mentors and lead the way for our student-athletes so that they can understand the importance of giving back and helping others,” said Assistant Director of Athletics/SWA, Dawn Anselmi.
