SALISBURY, Md. – It is the time of year to think about giving to others and Salisbury University student-athletes and athletic trainers have done just that to make a difference in the lives of four local families.
The women’s lacrosse, women’s soccer, and volleyball teams and the athletic trainers each recently adopted a family in need and were able to donate Christmas presents, including beds, mattresses, microwave ovens and toys for the children.
The Salisbury University students worked in conjunction with Shore Up! Inc., in Salisbury. Formed in 1965, SHORE UP! has been serving low-income and disadvantaged persons on the Eastern Shore for over 45 years. SHORE UP is an acronym for “Self-Help on Rural Economics and Urban Problems.”
This marks the second year that Salisbury student-athletes have adopted families for the holidays and adds to the long list of charitable causes that they Sea Gulls support.
