Tiger SAAC and PAWS Committees Make Holidays a Little Brighter
Dec. 16, 2011
The University of Memphis Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and PAWS combined to make the holidays a little brighter for some of the kids through Youth Villages this season.
The student-athletes raised money and collected donated sporting equipment for a cottage of 10-12 year old boys. The student-athletes collected over $900 for the kids at Youth Villages, and on Sunday, another group of eight year old boys from Youth Villages visited the Hall of Fame, where they spent the evening with some Tiger student-athletes. They also decorated cookies, toured the Penny Hardaway Hall of Fame and were given special Memphis gifts at the end of the night.
A Tiger Christmas was organized by SAAC and PAWS. Privacy rights for Youth Villages participants prevent photos showing the recipients, but thank you to all who donated and to all of our student-athletes who participated.
