DePaul in the Community: Vincentian Day Recap

| | TrackBacks (0)

DePaul student-athletes joined the University community earlier this month for the annual Vincentian Service Day. The annual event sent nearly 1,800 members from the DePaul family into Chicago for numerous service projects on Saturday, May 5.



The men's soccer team joined Kai Omega sorority at Gage Park to spruce up the park with truckloads of mulch. Member of the men's cross country and track and field program collected donations for Alzheimer's research while the men's and women's tennis teams volunteered at the Blessed Sacrament Youth Center.



The women's basketball team went to the Northwest Side Housing Center with a group of about 20 people from DePaul to help clean up a neighborhood. Among the many duties were cleaning up the garbage, raking leaves, mowing the lawn, cutting shrubs and picking weeds.

Earlier this week, DePaul hosted a group of Tiger Cub Scouts from the Lincoln Park neighborhood and met with Dave Corzine for a tour of the Sullivan Athletics Center before joining Mac Calloway and men's basketball player Jamee Crockett for some fitness and basketball drills.



Corzine provided a tour of DePaul's athletics facility with stops in the weight room and locker room before heading to the gym to meet Calloway - DePaul's director of strength and conditioning - and Crockett.
