DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. (Sept. 13, 2017) – The Mercy College women's lacrosse team volunteered with Volunteer New York! for their 9/11 tribute day on Monday, Sept. 11 at the Westchester County Center.
Volunteer New York!'s mission is to inspire, mobilize, and equip individuals and groups to take positive action to address pressing challenges, support nonprofits and strengthen the quality of life in our community. Volunteer New York! is a one-stop resource devoted to increasing volunteerism in Westchester and our surrounding communities.
The women's lacrosse team took time to make thank you cards for troops overseas and local first responders. This is the third year in a row that they have participated in this event.
"These student-athletes were so young when September 11th happened that I feel it is important for them to understand the impact it had on our country and those who work each day to protect it," said Head Coach Dawn Sachs.
