Union Lines (vs. RPI, 11-15-13)
Team bonding while lending time to a good cause … not a bad idea.
Union players put their “soft hands around the net” to good use.
In hockey parlance, a garbage goal is a shot that finds the back of the net with realtive ease, usually scored by an opportunistic player who was in front of the crease at the right place, at the right time.
Union players recently took out the garbage in a different way, taking time during their off day to dispose of litter in the adjacent neigborhoods to campus.
"The Union campus is beautiful and we want to help keep it that way," says senior Kevin Sullivan. "Our school is part of larger community that gives us great support and makes us feel welcomed. This is a chance to give back."
The “Helping Hands” project commenced Oct. 26, as groups of players canvassed Nott Street, Union Street, Seward Place and Van Vranken Avenue to collect trash and help beautify the neighborhoods surrounding Union College.
The team plans to take part in more “Helping Hand” sessions this season.
