New Rochelle, NY - The Student Athlete Advisory Committee along with members of the Iona College Softball team joined together to participate in Hands Around Iona. Members of SAAC raised money and participated in the event on Tuesday, April 8th 2008 to help fund schools in Zambia.

Over the past few years, a number of Christian Brothers from Africa have come to Iona College to earn their degrees and return to their native country to work with the children and youth of their homeland. In an effort to help reach out to the communities in need Hands Around Iona was created. Funds raised this year will be used to purchase desks and chairs for the classrooms these students use, as well as providing them with learning books and materials. SAAC members helped contribute to the $1500 raised by the Iona community to be donated this year.
