S.A.A.C. brightens holidays for Sonoma County family

ROHNERT PARK --- The SONOMA STATE Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.C.) made the holidays just a little brighter for one Sonoma County family this December through their annual Adopt-A-Family program.  Through donations the organization raised over $400 that went toward making sure one family had a very merry Christmas.

S.A.A.C. raised the money through several endeavors, including a 50/50 raffle at basketball games, face painting, and the selling of t-shirts.  With that money, several S.A.A.C. representatives went shopping and fulfilled the wish list for one lucky Sonoma County family.  They also supplied the family with a gift certificate to Safeway.

The family was sponsored through the Salvation Army and included two parents and three children, aged 4-11.

Said S.A.A.C. president Megan Catton, "It really made us feel good to do something for a family in need."

The mission of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to enhance the total student-athlete experience at Sonoma State University.  Through community service and providing activities for SSU Intercollegiate Athletic teams, S.A.A.C. provides communication between student-athletes and the athletic department.
