Student Athletes Collect Toys for Local Children at “Stuff the Net”

For the third year, Wesleyan's Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) sponsored "Stuff the Net" to benefit Macdonough School, one of eight local elementary schools in Middletown.  For one week, people visiting the Freeman Athletic Center had the opportunity to drop off unwrapped toys intended for students ages 5-11 and leave them in the hockey goal set up in the Cross Street Lobby.  The toys were wrapped by Macdonough staff, Athletic Department staff and student-athlete volunteers. The gifts were taken to Macdonough School for distribution to the students. Over the past two years, hundreds of gifts were donated, ranging from stuffed animals to bicycles.
