Long Island City, N.Y. – Taking a brief respite for the lacrosse season, the Queens College lacrosse team spent Wednesday night donating their time and effort to the Materials for the Arts organization in Long Island City. The team chipped in by sorting and organizing numerous donations received by the charity.
The Materials for the Arts is New York’s premiere reuse center, providing a way for companies and individuals to donate unneeded supplies to thousands of nonprofit organizations with arts programming and public schools. These materials get into the hands of children to help promote participation and growth in the arts.
Head Coach Todd Kaiser summed up the evening best, “To know that we are helping children is especially rewarding. Promoting the arts to them at a young age will help them as they get older.”
The QC lacrosse team returns to action on Saturday, April5, when they face Dowling College at home at 1:00 PM.
