WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross women's soccer team totaled 659 hours of community service over the past year. The team volunteered for a total of 35 different organizations, and averaged just under 22 hours of community service per team member.

“Community service is a cornerstone to our program,” said head coach Casey Brown. “We are so fortunate with the opportunities we have here at Holy Cross that the concept of giving and selflessness is paramount to who we are.  This team fully embraced service to another level where we were so impressed with the time, energy and commitment they put into these various organizations within the Holy Cross and Worcester communities.”

During both the fall and spring semesters, 100% of the team volunteered their time. The team worked with groups including the American Cancer Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Special Olympics, Working for Worcester and many more. The Crusaders also volunteered as a group during Holy Cross Cares Day.

“Since community service is a part of our team identity, it also further reinforces the bonds and relationships between teammates. When you are shoulder to shoulder with your teammates spending time cleaning up Worcester and representing Holy Cross Cares Day, it's a special feeling that shows how much these girls value each other and the community they represent.”
