Morrisville State student-athletes tackle community service

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – Morrisville State College student-athletes took a break during preseason workouts to assist with various community service projects, tackling two significant service efforts on campus.

As the new athletic stadium nears completion, the Mustangs football team assisted in moving more than 3,000 cement blocks needed to complete the locker rooms on the lower level of the stadium facility earlier in camp.

Today, both the football and men’s soccer squads offered their services to assist with new student move-in, as Morrisville State welcomed its 2012 and 2014 classes.

As part of a continuing community service program within the athletic department, student-athletes are involved in a variety of service programs, benefiting both the campus and surrounding communities.

Last year, Morrisville State student-athletes logged more than 300 hours of community service with various community organizations, including The Ronald McDonald House, Special Olympics, Morrisville Children’s Center and Morrisville-Eaton Elementary School, along side of assisting community members with yard clean-up in both the fall and spring seasons.

Complete athletic team schedules are available on the college’s web-site at http://athletics.morrisville.edu or by calling the sports information office at 315-684-6250.
