WILMINGTON, N.C. - UNC Wilmington Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) recently delivered its annual Christmas basket to a needy family in the Wilmington area.

Led by SAAC advisor Rodney Young, the SAAC members adopted the Simpson family, purchasing groceries, board games, stuffed animals, toy cars and trucks, and a wagon for the family.

"It was a wonderful experience for our student-athletes to make a difference during the holidays," said Young. "They were very excited about giving back and continuing to demonstrate their commitment to leadership through service."
