Team Service Projects

Each of the eight varsity athletic teams annually performs an on-campus and off-campus service project.  Teams have chosen a variety of projects over the past several years. Reading for an elementary school class, serving dinner at the South Bend Center for the Homeless, and raising money for and participating in Light the Night events are just a few examples of projects that Saint Mary's teams have been a part of in the past.

Take a look at what Belles varsity athletes have done to help serve the College and local community! A listing of past service events can be found at the bottom of the page.
