ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. (Mar. 2, 2016) – The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) of the Molloy College Department of Athletics recently took part in the “Open Your Heart” campaign to provide pajamas and books for children across the country as part of the Pajama Program’s fight against what they call the “Danger Season.”
The student-athletes helped to collect over 50 pairs of pajamas and 50 books to give to children in need. The Pajama Program dubbed the six-month period between October and March as the “Danger Season” due to the extreme cold temperatures that face a considerable portion of the United States during these months. The student-athletes were able to collect these important items and are planning to drop off these essentials to the Economic Opportunity Commission in Hempstead.
