On Wednesday, December 7, 2005, members of the Iona College Football team participated in a Toy Drive and Community Christmas party at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle. This is the third year that the football team has contributed to this event.
Team members helped in many ways to make the experience an enjoyable and memorable one for youngsters and their families from the local community. During the afternoon, members of the football team became members of Santa’s team as stand in Elves. They pasted out present with Santa, took pictures of families and Santa Clause, handed out juice and cookies, and past out cool shades for all the children as they left the Sound Shore Medical Center. The event brought smiles to the faces of hundreds of children and the honorary elves on a winter afternoon.
