WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — The Archbishop Stepinac football team held its annual dinner last week and used the occasion to reach out to children in the community.
The Crusaders and coach Mike O'Donnell collected toys that will be distributed to El Centro Hispano de White Plains early next week for Christmas.
El Centro Hispano provides information about housing, immigration, employment, health and education, and assists families with a variety of bilingual, cultural, outreach and advocacy programs.
"The football program takes much pride in helping people who are not as fortunate as we might be during the holiday season," O'Donnell said.
Crusaders Michael Carlucci (Elmsford), Tim Hill (White Plains), Brian Harris (Bronxville), Jason Kennedy (Elmsford), Robert Bambil (White Plains), Anthony Corato (Yonkers), John Fitzmaurice (White Plains), Liam O'Donnell (White Plains) and Sheldon Salmon (Mount Vernon) were among the players who participated in the gift drive.
