DENTON, Texas (12/13/11) - Mean Green student-athletes provided holiday cheer to the residents of the Carriage House in Denton by dropping off gifts this past weekend.
Over the last month, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee collected money from their fellow student-athletes to buy a Nintendo Wii Video Game Console to help the residents of the assisted-living facility become more active. The student-athletes raised over $300 and bought a Wii, controllers and games.
SAAC representatives Nic Summerfield (football), Alexis Widacki (swimming and diving), Clinton Collins (track and field) and Natalie Jakopin (swimming and diving) stopped by the Carriage House on Saturday with the gifts.
Starting next year, members from each team plan on spending time at the Carriage House playing games with the residents and getting to know them better.
