NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Student-athletes from Southern Connecticut State University helped at the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce Sports Council’s Dover Beach clean up event in New Haven on Sunday. Along with student-athletes from other institutions in the area, members of the Southern football team came out to help with the clean up.
This program is just one example of many community outreach events that SCSU student-athletes will take part in as part of the Tim Greer Insurance Agency Community Service Cup.
Initiated in September, 2008, the ‘Community Service Cup’ program provides a competitive format that allows student-athletes to gain an enriched experience through engagement with the on-campus and local communities by supporting ventures of traditional citizens, campus community members and peer students and student-athletes. SCSU student-athletes volunteered more than 3,000 hours of their time to numerous outreach efforts, both on-campus and in Greater New Haven, during the 2012-13 academic year.
