One Shirt, One Body and Heal the Sole

Written by Luke Smith

SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) is a student run organization on campus helping to “Promote opportunity and foster a positive image for all student-athletes.” Every year, SAAC runs an event known as “One Shirt, One Body”, a campus-wide clothing drive that takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas break. SAAC asks that athletes bring in some of their old or unused Lafayette Athletic gear and drop them in the cardboard boxes around Kirby Sports Center and outside the team locker rooms. All donations go directly to a local shelter, so please remember to donate anything you might have lying around. Shoes are also accepted as part of their “Heal the Sole” initiative, (yes, pun intended). These drives run until the end of the exam period, so SAAC asks each team to participate to the fullest, especially during the giving Holiday Season!
