Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Leads Efforts in Adopt A Family Project For Christmas
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College Athletics, led by the Student-Athlete Advisory Council joined forces with the DaVinci Center to provide Christmas gifts to 125 local children.
The Adopt a Family Project is a program set in place by the DaVinci Center, which exists to improve the quality of life for the residents in the North End of Providence. The families work with the center throughout the year in a variety of ways. This specific program matches donors with needy children to provide gifts of clothing and toys during the Christmas season.
All 19 varsity athletic sports teams at Providence College were assigned a group of children to help provide for. Led by women's ice hockey seniors Alanna Serviss '18 & Blair Parent '18 the Student-Athlete Advisory Council reps as well as the entire Athletic Department, these children will receive at least one gift on Christmas morning.
Executive Director, John DeLuca, met members of the athletic department upon delivery of the gifts and has referred to the yearly help as "a gift from heaven" because he worried how he would find enough sponsors to help the over 300 families in need. "We are so energized by the Athletic Department's spirit of the Christmas Season exemplified by their compassion for the needy who reside in the area surrounding the Providence College campus. The entire Athletic Department, which sponsored more than 125 children, led by the Women's Hockey Team, has deeply impressed our Agency and our entire Community. The generosity and care shown by the beautiful gifts that were donated are going to make a positive difference in the lives of many. May God Bless all of you and your families during the Christmas Season."
