PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. - Pace University student-athletes participated in 'Make A Difference' Day this past Saturday as they helped out in the local community. Members of the Pace baseball, softball and swimming & diving teams all participated in the event.
The Pace baseball team, along with Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance Kayne Gutierrez, went to the John A. Coleman School as part of a year-long partnership with the Coleman School. The players helped build toys and cardboard houses for the children to utilize during the school year.
"'Make a Difference Day' was a great experience for our student-athletes," Gutierrez said. "I went with members of our baseball team to the John A. Coleman School and they really enjoyed helping out and building new toys for the children to use."
Softball head coach Claudia Stabile took her team along with swimming & diving to the United Methodist Church in White Plains in partnership with the Pleasantville Rotary Club. They repackaged donated goods to give to other non-profits in Westchester County.
"Our softball program and additional members in our group for 'Make A Difference' Day had a great time assisting the United Methodist Church," said Stabile. "Our student-athletes enjoyed giving back to the Westchester community and we look forward to future service events in the area."
