Saints in the Community


One of the main objectives of the Siena athletic department has always been to remain actively involved in the Capital Region community. Siena’s student athletes and coaches made a record number of appear- ances in the community during the 2009-10 season, volunteering thousands of hours to help many organizations. Additionally, the athletic department donates game tickets, sports camps scholarships and sporting apparel and memorabilia to local charities.


Saints in the Community partners: • Ronald McDonald House Charities • American Cancer Society • Adopt-A-School Program


In addition, each team honors requests from other local organiza- tions and seeks out new ways to enrich the community.


RonaldMcDonald House Charities


Throughout the school year, all of Siena’s athletic teams are involved in visiting either the Ronald McDonald House in Albany or the Ronald McDonald Family Room at the Albany Medical Center.

RONALDMCDONALD HOUSECHARITIES OFTHE


Student athletes and coaches help lift the spirits of the sick children and their families by preparing meals at the House, assisting in spring cleanup efforts or simply signing autographs and playing games with the patients in the Family Room.


AmericanCancer Society


Siena has a special partnership with the American Cancer Society and several teams host annual fund- raisers and awareness games to support this worthy cause.


The Adopt-A-School program is a community initiative intended to motivate area elementary students through interaction with Siena’s student athletes. Members of Siena’s athletic teams interact with designated schools throughout the year and learn first-hand the value of volunteering in the community. The elementary students can find that learning is fun as teachers incorporate Siena Athletics into class lesson plans (i.e. using statistics for math assignments, or writing to the players for English).


Siena’s current adopted schools are:


• Brighter Choice Charter School for Boys, Albany, N.Y.


• Delaware Community School, Albany, N.Y.


• Acadia Middle School, Clifton Park, N.Y.


Several of Siena’s sports teams have volunteered with the Colonie-based Shooting Stars. 66
