Last week, the LIU Post men’s lacrosse team participated in the school’s 15th-annual Turkey Trot to support the United Veterans Beacon House in Bay Shore.
The Pioneer student-athletes donated over 100 food items and several bags of clothing to the homeless veteran population, while running in the 5k.
Formed in 1994, the United Veterans Beacon House provides their residents with a host of supportive services, including case management, transportation for medical visits, education and job placement programs.
“This is a great campus community service event that helps our local homeless veterans,” said Head Coach John Jez. “I was very pleased with the team’s dedication to our veterans and we are all driven to support them in any way possible.”
