On Saturday, December 8th, over 30 Pacific student-athletes and staff members participated in a Habitat for Humanity build in Turlock. The volunteers assisted with painting, cement work, and landscaping.
"There's a great amount of satisfaction in knowing you're doing something for others in the community," said freshmen Kim Hargrave from the women's soccer team. "The hardest part wasn't the physical labor, thanks to our strength coach, but it was hard getting up early on a Saturday morning. That is a minimal price to pay," Hargrave added.
"It was great seeing student-athletes from various teams working together for the common cause," said Head Women's Water Polo Coach Megan Thomson.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit housing ministry that provides homes for families, and whose purpose is to make decent shelter available for as many families as possible.
