OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Redshirt senior Mairi Buchan is the Vice President of SAAC at ODU and spearheaded the campaign for the upcoming holiday period that all student-athletes could help people less privileged by filling a minimum of two boxes that included anything from toys to bath soap (items that children in underprivileged areas or war-torn countries may not have easy access to). The goal is to give the children something to smile about in what may be a difficult time for them.
