HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (Oct. 28, 2014) – On Friday, Oct. 24, the Molloy College Department of Athletics sent 35 student-athletes, along with coaches and administrators to the nearby Village of Hempstead to participate in the East Coast Conference’s second annual “Team Up To Clean Up” event. These individuals helped to improve Hempstead by painting guardrails and fire hydrants, as well as picking up trash and debris. The Department totaled 170 hours of service during this event.
“We’re out here today as part of the East Coast Conference’s ‘clean up’ initiative,” commented Molloy Director of Athletics Susan Cassidy-Lyke in the video below. “All the institutions within the conference are neighboring with their local communities. Here at Molloy College, this is our second year in the Village of Hempstead and it’s exciting for us to be able to help out a neighboring community.”
“It was a good way to give back to the community,” said Molloy men’s basketball sophomore Charlie Marquardt. “Molloy preaches to do good service and that’s what we did here today.”
“Molloy College Athletics continues to be a leader in service to the community and their work again this year in the ECC’s conference-wide ‘Team Up to Clean Up’ project was outstanding,” said ECC Commissioner Dr. Bob Dranoff. “I’m sure the community is very proud of the men and women from Molloy Athletics, who work hard to make a difference.”
