Twenty members of the UGA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will volunteer with the American Red Cross on Saturday, Jan. 23.
University of Georgia athletes from the baseball, football, soccer, and volleyball teams will be installing smoke alarms in the Pinewood Estates Community estimated to have 75 homes and trailers as part of the American Red Cross national initiative to reduce death and injury from home fire.
“It’s nice to be able to help out the people in the community,” senior pitcher Mike Mancuso said. “They are the ones that come support us and it’s satisfying for us to be able to go out and help them. It’s definitely an important part of being a student-athlete.”
“We do things with our teammates but it’s also nice when we can get out and work with the other teams as well,” Mancuso said. “We all represent the University of Georgia and it’s important to do community service together.”
The following student-athletes will be volunteering:
Trevor Kieboom Trey Logan, Mike Mancuso, Jose Mendoza, Trevor Tinder, Robert Tyler
Reggie Carter, Aaron Davis, Jackson Harris, Quincy Mauger, Ryne Rankin
Alexa Antetomaso, Maddie Burdick, Summer Burnett, Taylor Donahue, Natalie Goodman, Kelsey Killean, Kara Looby, Kelsey Nix, Alex Pallo, Rebecca Rasmussen, Carly Settles
Cassidy Anderson, Amanda Dachs, Kendall Kazor, Maddie Lobenstein, Elle McCord, Megan Spencer
