LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. – The Siena softball recently visited the Ronald McDonald House as a part of their commitment to the local community and the values instilled at Siena College through the Saints in the Community Program.
“I know the Coaching Staff and the Siena Softball players really enjoyed making breakfast for the people living at the Ronald McDonald House,” said Assistant Coach Casey Halloran-Bump. “Community Service is important to the Siena mission and our program as well.”
The team was up early to help make breakfast for the Ronald McDonald House. Several team members assisted in making favorite breakfast dishes from a traditional fruit bowl to scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and orange juice. They also helped make monkey bread, a cinnamon sugar styled bread for everyone.
As part of the Franciscan values at Siena College, the athletic department takes pride in providing opportunities to the student athletes in unique ways so they can share in the Franciscan values through the Saints in the Community program.
The softball team is preparing for the start of the 2014 season as they look to defend their regular season MAAC Championship. Last season’s MAAC Championship was the first in Siena Softball history. The 2014 schedule will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
