The Mercy College women’s lacrosse team, a part of the long island based ECC, volunteered with Volunteer New York! for their 9/11 tribute day on Friday, Sept. 9 at the Westchester County Center.
Volunteer New York!’s mission is to inspire, mobilize, and equip individuals and groups to take positive action to address pressing challenges, support nonprofits and strengthen the quality of life in our community.
The women’s lacrosse team took time to make cards that were attached to rice crispy treats for first responders. They also made holiday cards for meals on wheels and people who cannot medically leave their house. This is the second year in a row that they have participated in this event.
“It is a humbling experience for our student-athletes as they were very young when 9/11 happened,” said head coach Dawn Anselmin. “I want to make sure they know and understand that the lives lost on that terrible day will not be in vein and that we will work hard to help those helping others to be safe in our country.”
