In December 2010, members of the Women's Softball Team including Katrina Gaudier, Ashley Botelho, Katy Harrington, Kelly Downes, Ellen Boundy, Rachel Campbell, Laura Stagliano, Paige Collings, Hillary Allen, Elena Fravel, Devon Metcalf, Caprice DeMirjian, Amanda Bachmann, Caitlyn Gravenor, Jenn Reading, Hanna Parrish, Shyann Beach committed themselves to "Operation Christmas Child".
The team participated in Operation Christmas Child, a gift collection project organized by the Samaritan's Purse Charity. They collect shoe boxes full of presents for children around the world who would not otherwise have anything to open. The team worked in groups of 2 to donate 9 total shoe boxes. The boxes were for both boys and girls ranging in age from 3 to 12. The presents were wrapped and taken to a local drop off location.
