Sewanee Student-Athletes Support Angel Tree Christmas
(Story taken from the Sewanee-The University of the South
SEWANEE, Tenn. - Over the last several weeks, each of Sewanee's athletic teams has funded and purchased Christmas gifts for 17 "angels" in nearby Grundy County. These so-called "angels" are underprivileged children, ranging from ages six months to 17 years, whose families do not have the means to provide them with Christmas presents this year given the current economic situation.
The effort was organized by the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC). The money raised for the gifts was completely independent of team athletic budgets. It was simply the result of student-athletes having the desire to give from their own pockets to brighten the lives of some local children at Christmas.
The SAAC came together on Thursday, December 10, Reading Day, to deliver the presents to the Grundy County Angel Tree.
