WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Two groups of Archbishop Stepinac students got their hands dirty this past weekend, helping communities across Westchester.

Working with Habitat for Humanity, Stepinac’s varsity baseball team helped start building a new home for a veteran’s family in Yonkers. The group of 30 athletes dug trenches, built a shed, hung plywood walls and removed debris from the site.

The students also worked at a nearby community park to help create walkways and build gardens. They also undertook a fund raising campaign to help Habitat for Humanity meet its mission of providing safe, quality affordable and green housing for lower-income families and individuals.

"We are especially honored to have participated in a project that will help a veteran’s family, giving the students the opportunity to show their appreciation in a small way to those who serve our country”said varsity baseball coach, and Habitat volunteer, Keith Richardson.

Another contingent of Stepinac students, this time 55 seniors, spent a Saturday in Glen Island Park in New Rochelle getting wet at the Seventh Annual Westchester Polar Plunge. The annual event helps raise money for the 3,500 Athletes of Special Olympics New York in the Hudson Valley. As a result of their efforts, the seniors raised more than $6,000 that will help provide year-round sports training and athletic competitions for children and adults living with intellectual disabilities.
