TAMPA, FL - The Nyack College Lacrosse Team gave back to the Hillsborough County Area, while on their spring break trip to Tampa.
The girls completed their first project at a local church in Mount Vernon, NY during fall ball, and finished their second project here in Florida. The Lady Warriors volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, and helped build a community of houses by focusing on three in specific.
Unafraid of hard work, the Warriors were not shy or timid in taking a hammer to the nail. The girls spent most of the day stabilizing the foundations of two homes, as well as painting and installing insulation in the third. Captain Lauren Lebo (West Simsbury, CT) said: "I really enjoyed helping build the houses with habitat for humanity today because we had the unique opportunity to build with the people who were actually going to live in the houses. It was a great opportunity to serve and make a difference in a very tangible way."
Overall, the time spent volunteering was satisfying. Sophomore and defensive player Danielle Page (London, England) has a great point in saying: "Participating in Habitat for Humanity was a rewarding experience. Not only was my team and I able to help to build houses for deserving families, but we also worked alongside very influential and inspiring young people who helped open our eyes to the challenges faced by others."
