SAAC Kicks Off Season of Giving with Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Drive
Academic Services 11/22/2017

Norfolk, VA -- Old Dominion University's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) last Wednesday evening collecting and organizing materials donated by fellow student-athletes for the annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Drive through Samaritan's Purse. In total, 71 boxes were collected and will be shipped across the world. Redshirt sophomore Kristie Robles and junior Kealsie Robles, both field hockey student-athletes at ODU, began participating in the shoebox drive several years ago with their home church and felt that it would be a great opportunity to involve other ODU student-athletes in giving back. In addition to organizing boxes through SAAC, they also involved their entire team and collected 25 boxes from teammates. "I love the thought of being able to make, as small as it may be, a difference in a child's life across the world," Kealsie Robles said as she reflected on the event. "Some athletes even wrote letters/notes in the shoeboxes for kids telling them that they are special and loved. It warms my heart to know that we can bless a child with something so little, something that will bring them so much joy on Christmas." SAAC members spent the evening packing their shoeboxes to the brim with items such as school supplies, toys, hard candy, soccer balls, and other items for young boys and girls. Additionally, the organization requests a $9 donation per box to cover shipping costs, which includes destination tracking and allows donors to see exactly where in the world their box is shipped. Mufu Taiwo, a senior football student-athlete, assisted with organizing the event and was impressed by the outcome. "I really enjoyed participating in this drive because it showed how much people care about making a difference in the world. We are giving less fortunate kids an opportunity to have a marvelous Christmas. What touched me the most was how well the boxes w
