Clinton, S.C. – Presbyterian College student-athletes across an array of sports visited East Side Elementary on Friday handing out Blue Hose tee shirts, and signing the tee shirts. This community service outreach was part of “One Shirt One Body.” The idea is to help give as many shirts away to children who may or may not be in need of more tee shirts.
The day also happened to land on National Literacy Day so the athletes also decided to tell the students what their favorites children’s books were when they were little.
“One time per year our student athlete advisory committee coordinates with all of our teams at Presbyterian College to donate shirts to a local elementary school,” said Senior Associate Athletics Director Dee Nichols. “Every third, fourth, and fifth grade student gets a shirt. This is considered part of the implementation of ‘One Shirt One Body.’ It is a lot of fun, the student-athletes really enjoy it and we hope they (the elementary students) will come support us at some of our home games.”
2016 was the first year PC did this but with it being such a hit it is sure to continue.
