DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. (Dec. 28, 2020) – In place of the usual secret Santa tradition, the Mercy College women’s basketball team decided to adopt a family for Christmas organized by families in East Rockaway, New York.
The event was organized by several families in the area. The gifts were broken up among student-athletes and coaches so the kids in the family had all the items on their Christmas lists.
“Everyone had a tough year and as a program we are thankful for what we have and know things have been much tougher for others in need! We wanted to give back to those less fortunate. It is the season of giving!!” stated Head Coach Scott Lagas.
