WILMINGTON, N.C. – The UNC Wilmington Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) continued a Thanksgiving tradition recently by delivering a special basket to a needy family in the Cape Fear Region.

SAAC President Shade Smith was joined by several other members of the committee and advisor Rodney Young as they visited the Williams family in the Castle Hayne area. After several members spent time shopping at a nearby supermarket, the group met in the Trask Coliseum parking lot two days later to make the special delivery.


The Thanksgiving basket has become an annual tradition for UNCW’s SAAC, which is also planning a similar delivery for the Christmas season.
