Saint Mary's College athletes are taking some time off the practice courts and fields, to give back to the community.
Student athletes at Saint Mary's College hosted their annual holiday party this afternoon.
Each team had crafts and treats for kids and their families.
It is also a chance for the Saint Mary's athletes to do some team bonding while helping others get into the Christmas spirit.
Saint Mary’s soccer player, Nicole Leach, says, “we have a bunch of crafts, all the diff. Teams have a craft for kids, lots of games, basketball, volleyball, all kinds of fun stuff.”
“That's one of benefits of being division three athletes; you don't just eat, sleep and play our sport. We like giving back to the community. We're athletes and students too,” says McKenna Corrigan, a Saint Mary’s softball player.
The holiday party is one of three events the Saint Mary's student athletes host for the community each year.
